So I've been perusing the D web site but I can't find the source code.  Is 
it available?

P.S.  No offence to whoever is in charge, but the D site is full of 
information but could be reorganized a bit.  I'd also like a few pages on 
things like why D was written, why DigitalMars exists, and credits.

If you have downloaded dmd.zip and extracted it, then you will find the source to the D front in in dmd/src/dmd.

Walter Bright created Zortech C++ (first native C++ compiler for PC) which became Symantec C++. Walter got the rights to the compiler back from Symantec and the product was renamed to Digital Mars C++. Walter's DMD D compiler uses that C++ backend and can be considered a quasi-commercial product. It's free for now. GDC is a compiler that uses the dmd front end and the GCC backend and is totally open source. Walter is the reason we have D at all. I only wish he created it a few years earlier so version 1.0 would be out by now.
