In that context, D is just a codename for some other microsoft programming langauge. It's not Digital Mars' D. Which begs the question, does Digital Mars own any D-related trademarks? I didn't see anything on the web site that indicates D is trademarked. -Steve

Hell yeah! They *BZZZZT* dropped the *BZZZT* SOA *BUZZZT!!!* keyword in only a few paragraphs. I scanned ahead, saw it, closed the window.

Ummm.... the name D is taken by an active community of programmers and programming language which ACTUALLY DOES qualify as a replacement for C that Microsoft has nothing to do with. Can someone tell them to fuck off?
