So what happened to UCSD Pascal? The answer to that question could be important, as the field sorts out which of these statements is a better predictor of Java's future: "Java is the most important new technology to come along in years" and "Java is something that everyone is talking about, but few people are using" (both of these statements have been seen recently in the popular computing press).
The UCSD Pascal system simply faded away, a technical success but a marketplace failure.
