D - Software written in D

Can some of you post some URL's to cool examples?

I think D should be multiplatform but should first concentrate on a nice
RAD environment for windows. It should not use an existing peerless
multiplatform GUI toolkit. The hard and annoying work of creating the D
gui toolkit should be done for each platform individually.

For design questions, C# and Java both, not one or the other, can offer
insight for troubling nit picky things in a standard library. For RAD
questions as well, but Java is peerless and that's not good imho. An
approach like Borland's VCL/XCL is also worth a look, as it is practical.

Have you looked at GTK? I think a peerful multi-platform gui toolkit can work nicely.

GTK in Windows is ugly and non-standard. It is not what users are used to. There are other issues as well, but if I mention those, the all important ones I just mentioned would likely be completely ignored in replies.

 What about leveraging wxwindows?

Hi, I once managed the open-source project for a portable GUI library OpenAmulet (http://www.openip.org) that uses constraints, which is a very powerful concept. I'm interested in getting the first steps done in porting it to D. Anyone interested? -- Robert M.
