This is a shame. I am looking forward to D (Actually, would REALLY look forward of a port of Qt or WxWindows to D -- I'd almost be ready to spend time with that rather than Python) but I don't run Microsoft operating systems anymore. Not unless threatened or held at paycheck-point. Tim

Well, while most people still do (I personally have WinXP, BeOS and QNX installed), I believe Walter's choice is the best in this situation.

I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that a "dfront" will be necessary to build. Dfront will translate D to C. That would make D available on any platform with a decent C compiler. Windows will sport a native compiler, but the existence of Dfront will mean users will not be risking their projects on a unique implementation.

And new platforms could be very easily bootstrapped, too. That would be a very good idea indeed. Salutaciones, JCAB

Seems very wise to me. Walter, don't hurry. -- Mark

Yes, a dfront would be a great idea. It would at least make it easy to jump start D on other platforms.
