D - D on slashdot

Hello,

as you know D spec was on slashdot so you are bound to get people like me
with less than 20 years of development experience (only 5-10) ;)
discussing things that they dont fully understand (for example, D) :). On a
serious note, I read the specs and liked what I saw - I think the idea to
go garbage collection instead of manual memory management, drop templates
etc. is a good one, although I believe there should be some way to substitute
for templates in equal power but less complexity.

I for one am looking forward to seeing a compiler everyone can download
and test.

On a side note, having just finished a bioinformatics product that was in
essence an C-based multi-threaded version of someone else's code, I can tell you
that "synchronize" keyword and support for cleaner and
less-need-to-tend-to-detail threaded programming would have been welcome
help :)

Best regards,
Ognen Duzlevski

Thanks for your kind words. I do have a compiler for D, but it just isn't
ready to unleash. Looks like I'm going to be spending some late nights <g>.
