In the usage of D, to write software, what restrictions are there on written
code (i.e. LGPL, GPL, or user decides)?

I have not heard that any company besides Digitalmars is going to 
introduce a D compiler. There is a comunity afford to create a GCC frontend.
There is no restriction on written code. You can write whatever, 
whenever. You decide which license you use.

There's Digital Mars, and there's Gnu D.
 D looks very promising, is it known how many people are currently
 making use of if?

My guess is 5 to 10 thousand, based on download rates.
