D - Initial OS?

Greetings,

I am very impressed by the spec that is posted about D. Unfortunately, it
seems that Windows will be the initial target OS (judging by your other
compilers). I, being a Linux user, would really like to see a version that I
can use in the environment I feel most comfortable in. Is Windows the
initial target OS? If so, is Linux on the schedule?

Thanks,
Ben

Hi Walter, D looks like a really cool idea! I myself have often mused how I would change C and C++ if I could redesign them from scratch. D looks like a big step forward, I hope it takes off. BTW, I'm another linux user that would love to see D available for that platform. I do all my real work on Solaris and Linux. Regards, --Jonathan

Any gcc experts want to take a swing at it?
