Looks more like Limbo/NewSqueak. And the mascot's kind of
Glenda-ish (plus you mentioned Rob), so I wouldn't doubt it.
If Rob was involved, I very much doubt that Ada was an
intentional influence. Actally, it seems very much more like the
next generation of Limbo or Alef than anything else, the more I
look at it.

Part of the reason so many companies continue to develop software
using variations of waterfall is the misconception that the analysis
phase of waterfall completes the design and the rest of the process is
just non-creative execution of programming skills.
