I'm the OP. It's still a work in progress, some sections are super-thin and I need to put in more references since I don't explain most of the terms I introduce, and many of them are D-specific (e.g. scope statements).

You mention in the first post that you're unaware of any IDE for Mac. MonoDevelop + MonoD is cross platform and works identical (except for Debugging) on all three platforms. Also, the way you have MonoD listed ("for Linux..."), it could be confused as a Linux-Only IDE to a passer-by. I noticed later on a person was comparing VisualD to VisualStudios-C#. Often, I've had a much better time with MonoD over VisualD, and for those who place a lot of importance on intelisense, MonoD has much more comparable features to C# AtM. I would recommend amending your MonoD listing to include a "Cross Platform" label and emphasis on intelisense support *comparable* to C#. Mono-D's not all there yet, but it actually feels faster and less buggy than Mono C#'s built-in intellisense. Project management and refactoring support are also very complete. That being said, D is a much more dynamic beast (syntactically) than C#, so there's more than a few times code-completion simply fails. Regardless, it's a great development environment and I wouldn't recommend anything else :)

This was very good, at least much of the first items as I didn't get through everything.
