digitalmars.D - Re: Why we chose not to use D for our Linux project

Robert Fraser:
 D is still useful for quick scripting.

Useful maybe, but for quick scripting for me it's not quick enough nor flexible enough nor many other things, compared to Python :-) They are too much different. Have you tried to practically use Phobos RegularExpressions compared to their usage in Ruby? Here I have listed few differences (mostly regarding the bug production, that is an important thing to increase programming speed. In that list I have forgotten few things, like that it essentially avoids the large class of integer overflow-related bugs): http://www.digitalmars.com/webnews/newsgroups.php?art_group=digitalmars.D&article_id=71363 I think trying to do everything with D is silly.
