"X++ is an object-oriented language with similarities to C++ and Java."

"The memory management model is extremely simple: objects are created 
with a new operator. There are no explicit programmer-defined pointer 
data types, and there is no pointer arithmetic."

"The X++ garbage collector runs automatically; as soon as no references 
exist to a particular object, that object is deleted and its storage is 
reclaimed."

BTW M$ didn't make X++, they bought it. Also it's a domain specific language for business logic. Or so I'm told by someone who should known.

Nope, from those quotes alone it's clear that X++ is totally unsuitable for systems programming tasks. It's not even remotely competition for D. regards, frank
