D did seem to pop up in the comments a fair bit, which is certainly interesting. However, the interview itself said very little about Go other than why they decided to create it. If I were looking to find out much about Go, it sure wouldn't help much. It seems primarily to be of interest in informing you of Go's existence. But than again, I suppose that a lot of those type of interviews are pretty sparse on info that's actually interesting. It's hard to cover any real meat of a language in such a small, informal space. It was nice to see support for D in the comments though. In fact, I don't think that there was a lot of support for Go there, oddly enough. - Jonathan M Davis

Although the comments contain praise that's definitely underserved, it was heartwarming to see D get so much love. I decided to not participate to that thread (though I'm itching to). But, FWIW I'll have a (longer) interview on InformIT.com in which Eric Niebler grills me with questions about D. I can't wait to see it out. Andrei
