I am intereseted in finding out if anyone has done any performance comparisons
between D and the other languages. If so, I would like to be pointed to these
comparisons. I am interested in how it compares.

For the record, D is 'under-represented' on the GP4 (as opposed to the Debian) site because there are a few tests that inexplicably run slower on that particular machine than anywhere else I've been able to test on.

Have you already figured out, whether it's a hardware problem or not? There are many Gentoo-based live distros out there to test with. Maybe it's a hyperthread/smp-thingie? You know, this is kind of bad PR for Gentoo :P -- Jari-Matti

No, not for sure, but the only difference in CPU over a personal machine of mine is a few MHz and 256 vs. 512 cache.

Yea - I don't intend that, and the problem may well be on the D end of things which is why I care, but I (completely understandably) am not allowed on the machine to try and track the issue down. More troubling is that one of the tests that should run fine doesn't run at all. IIRC, it is not an HT chip (and is only a one processor machine). - Dave
