That's pretty exciting! Having people consider D a viable option for game development is very good exposure. I wonder how many people never heard of D until after they saw that post?

i don't wonder, here in my country(second world country if some can say so) people only know what is C#, C++, a bit of Python, a bit of Java, even less for fasm and others, maybe few other relatively new languages, and only very few enthusiasts(!) know and using D, though the others may knew about its existence they are VERY skeptical about it(sure, who needs another C++ done right when we have Java and C# ...). The entire industry here works for Windows and almost every company chooses easy path to use what Microsoft gives. No one really cares about result(though they shouting on every corner exactly opposed thing), process is a must they think. If you can drag and drop a button on a form this is a good language/ide/whatever they think, and i don't blame them, business is business, but that is why i left it for a good reason. I only wish that situation changes with come of solid tools like IDE's(for me now the only usable IDE is VisualD, mono-d is just pita to use at least on mac), major debuggers full support, UI toolkits(maybe even more than anything else) and so on.

It looks like the thread has been removed (but still visible through this link).
