    It's a new programming language. It first needs a good tool chain before it can find a wide use.
    I was excited for D about a decade ago, where were you?
    I'm disappointed it didn't catch on but I'm not pouting about it. Nowadays I hear about D and I think "geeze, forgot it even existed". Same for Pike (actually only found it looking for a C# alternative back when Mono was still in it's infancy). Either way, Rust succeeded where D failed in the market, so I'm really not concerned about it anymore.

      No, it is. Only for a person with a short attention span may it seem ancient.

      I'm not surprised to now see Rust and C# being mentioned here.

          I'm saying that you have a short attention span.

              Attention span in this discussion is completely irrelevant.

                Is it just this discussion or any discussion in which you take part in?

                  You're incredibly stupid.

                    No, but you are! You don't know what makes a language old and want to take yourself as the measure. You're like a child who has never heard of old wine and so it believes it's the type of wine, which one has bought last week.

                      Nice to see that D gets some support. It's actually a rather nice language in its own way, even though it never had the cool factor of Rust or Go, and with these two around, there seems to be little room for yet another "better-than-C" language at the moment.
