C# was more or less made to take on Java. As a language, it does offer more, and because of Microsoft's resources, it has a proper IDE and tons of libraries. Thus, C# has become a very popular language, and many people converted from Java to C# for that reason.
Even with many more libraries, D at most would beable to compete with C# or Java. It appears to me, that many of the 3rd party libraries I use on a day to day basis would never become part of these many-libraries. People simply don't want to re-invent the wheel. -Joel
Excuse the weirdness, I haven't slept all weekend: ~~ Wheels invented in C++ are not really wheels at all! Nobody can use them but C++ programmers, and even then it often depends on the compiler. Let us go forth, and find a means of binding C++ obj files such that they may be imported within C and D; that we may inherit their legacy code! Is it possible to create a D friendly obj file with the dmc?
