 D is very close to C. The productivity is much lower than with other 
 modern scripting or hybrid-functional languages.
 DMD is much slower than Sun Javac/Jvm 7, GNU GCC 4.5, and LLVM.
 "Succinct: The language should not be verbose. This is very important. 
 Brevity is one reason why Python and Ruby are popular."
 For example the lambda syntax is terribly verbose in D compared to Scala 
 or Haskell.
 Java 2-7 is very backwards compatible compared to D2.

Just one language :3
