I'm doing a short feature article on D, reflecting the 1.0 release, for a leading technology site/pub, and would like to talk (or email) with a few D developers or other experts. (I've already swapped email with Walter Bright, and talked with a D contributor.) E.g., - What features, aspects about D do you like? - What are you using D to do, have you done using D? What would you have used if D weren't available; how does D make things easier, better, faster, etc.? - Can you suggest any examples of D in production use? - Other thoughts? Please email me ASAP - dern at pair dot com -- I'd like to talk to one or two more sources by end of this week. (Sorry for the short notice.)

Here's one from Don Clugston: http://www.digitalmars.com/d/archives/digitalmars/D/D_Java_To_D_or_not_to_D_46213.htmlD is a language that seems to be made for writing libraries. It is exceptionally easy to write rock-solid code in D. The powerful template system, coupled with language features such as lazy evaluation, inner functions, etc make it possible to create extremely appealing syntax for library users. I believe it is possible to create nicer libraries in D than in any of those other languages you've mentioned. As a library developer, I reckon I'm about ten times productive in D as in C++. I predict we'll see a rapid expansion in D library development post-1.0.
and from Jeff M: http://www.digitalmars.com/d/archives/digitalmars/D/Survey_-_what_language_are_you_coming_from_46026.htmlI've been learning D for the past two weeks. It's like C++ except that it doesn't make me want to shove knitting needles into my eyes.

Life is too short to waste time with bad designed languages DOT Too short ? We are developing mission critical C/S database software dedicated to the vertical market. From time to time we have to support special hardware-components and our weapons are Modula/ASM. But this is history. We use D now because D is as readable as Java, is speed-competitive to C, and (for us the most important point) is secure! Bjoern
