 Yes, and even if i know this has been discussed to death, i'll allow myself to
add i really dislike the direction D is taking. D's homepage states it is
driven by practical experience and not academical feats. Hasn't a solid
standard library been shown over time to be absolutely necessary for any
language to become popular and highly usable? It seems like D is taking the
direction of adding lots of sugar features, and misses basic practical
experience stuff. All that sugar is totally useless if D doesn't even have a
standard library upon which everything can be built

I'll second that.
