Compared to C++, it has much friendlier syntax, important built in types 
and all the goodies. And let us not forget - big standard library ready 
to go.

But it is still rough on the edges, needs polishing and fixing little 
bugs. Now it needs tender care to grow big (and lose some weight from 
executables :).

Well, it is a nice to reinspect ones own decision after some time and confirm it was and is totally correct.

To do that just try going back to C++ ;)

Just did. Things lacking: - library - easy to use maps and arrays Things that should lack: - bloody header files and forward declarations - preprocessor perversions - cryptic signs like <> :: -> Things that are easier or more fun: - good compiler support - easy linking with C code - RAII tinkering & smaller memory footprint (GC just kills all the fun :(

You have got to be kidding me. D is above this ass kicking you speak. D waits for his opponent to turn around, hands them a sword, then punches them directly in the face.

I'm sure it is heavily influenced by something, might even be a Chuck Norris joke. But I can say that there wasn't anything specific in my mind at the time of writing.

Yes either that, or both already had a sword, but the good guy was pretending to strike with it, the bad guy focused on the incoming blade and blocked it and then Mr. Good Guy used the free hand for the punch.
