The article itself is okay. Unfortunately they author forget to talk about D
s modul concept and no word about GDC.
Interesting fact : Groovy 1.0 came out on the same day. Groovy 44 comment, D
approx. 440 comments.
Most comments about D are no very qualified (bullshit)

Not quite. It contains a typo "constant variables" instead of "constants, variables".

This article isn't very good at all, and especially the latest comments are horrible! A better one (at least that's what I think) can be found at golem.de : http://www.golem.de/0701/49690.html

I just wanted to say "thank you" to Leopold and Bjoern for these links. I tried reading them for fun and wound up learning some rudimentary German in the process! I guess it helps knowing what the subject matter is already about (plus the liberal use of English words thrown in). However, I'm finding some terms confound both dictionaries and automated translators. For example: http://www.heise.de/open/news/foren/go.shtml?read=1&msg_id=11899302&forum_id=110420 The use of the word "Urgestein" here must mean something like "milestone", but I'm not sure as it doesn't translate literally in a meaningful way; all I could find was "primary/parent/primitive rock" or "depth stone" (from geology via wikipedia). I guess it's a use specific to software engineering? Is there a dictionary for this kind of usage? -- - EricAnderton at yahoo

It comes from "Ur-" and "-gestein".

http://dict.leo.org is good for general purposes. "ein Urgestein" here seems to be best translated to - an institution - a founding father - an unspoiled, passionate, earthly person
