digitalmars.D - A possible furture for D.

Hello all!

I've been watching this forum since the first "D" posting on slashdot last year,
and recently I see there is a question about what might suite "D" as it's best
direction for adoption by the masses.. Well, I thought about it and came up with
"Parrot".

Check here: (  page 43 it gets interesting)
http://www.jwcs.net/~jonathan/papers/2005-lpw-parrot-slides.pdf

I wonder since "Parrot" could well replace every script engine on the WEB as the
defacto developer's tool.. Could "D" function as it's backbone core? Could "D"
be the fast compiler they need in order to make thier project possible? 



Ok here's where it gets wild.. Since Microsoft has licensed the C# language for
open source use, but not the CLI. Is it possible once "D" become the strong
backbone for "Parrot" to then port C# to "Parrot" as one of it's runtine
languages - thereby upsurping Microsoft at it's own game of web development
domination (via .NET)? 

Does anyone see the implications of "Parrot" using "D" as it's core engine? 


Could "Parrot" be "D"'s destiny? 


cheers!

CLI has been an ISO/IEC standard since April 2003 (see 23271 and 23272). Sean
