digitalmars.D - The D players

I'm probably slightly crazy, but I have this urge to associate the 
digitalmars.D group with some well known group of leaders.

Now I'd guess that still the best-known bunch would still be the allied 
leaders from WW2.

So I guess that whether he likes it or not, I have to cast Walter as 
Churchill - it was he who took on the burden in the first place.

But the others. Who is Roosevelt, who Eisenhower, Montgomery, Patton and 
so on? And most provocatively, who is Stalin?

A little relaxation - let's hear your views.

2012 First integration of the D programming language into several Linux distributions 2013 Libraries such as gtkd, qtd, derelict now have their packages in the distro. 2014 The language enters the top 10 in the Tiobe entry. From this point forward major companies start thinking of D as an option. Facebook starts using D. 2016 "D programming language" second edition by Andrei Alexandrescu 2018 ISO standardisation of the D programming language. 2020 Department of defence impressed about the D programming language 2020 First Terminator programmed with the D programming language. 2022 Software was programmed so well that it becomes self aware. World war begins. 2023 John Connor asks W. to find a weakness in the code. W. finds a bug in phobos and fixes it, making all Terminators impenetrable to software attacks. John Connor goes wtf. W. goes "I've got to think about my reputation as a programmer" 2024 The machines take over the world. W. is Miles Dyson of Cyberdyne Systems.

I'd love to take that role, with the sole reason he was a Russian. If the earth is still in one piece we owe it to them (not just ww2 but ever since). FYI, i am not a Russian.
