Steve Yegge's latest article has a ratter nice quote about D:

http://steve-yegge.blogspot.com/2007/02/next-big-language.html

"D's a really beautiful language. By rights it should be the next C++. However, 
C++ programmers won't have it because it's garbage collected (even though 
it can be disabled, and even though Stroustroup himself is now advocating 
adding garbage collection to C++). Walter Bright is one hell of a lot smarter 
than the C++ programmers who won't look at his language, and he has
demonstrated 
that D is as fast as or faster than C++ and nearly as expressive as Ruby 
or Python. It's a secret weapon just waiting to be seized by some smart company 
or open-source project."

Sorry, I just realized that. I followed a link from DZone and though it was a new one, but it was just one I hadn't read. So what's the NBL? ECMAScript 2?
