that's because in D, bugs are actually features.

The advantages of D are numerous. It a language design to make a newbie a pro and to give a pro an edge. It simplify Complex things and make them very simple. D is a joy to work with and bugs are not features

I think that if you want to advertise a single comment on Reddit or similar sites, the general forum would be more appopriate place for that. But that's just my opinion.

"D only has advantages" ?? What is the point of such a post? To me, it just comes across as being DPRK like propaganda. Perhaps it should mention 'sunrises'...the more the merry'r.

Evidently my brand of humor got lost in translation. I grovel and beg for forgiveness, and will appropriately flagellate myself with a wet noodle.

I found myself getting in trouble when I was texting and being sarcastic. I always add the little winky face now. People don't get mad anymore, but instead just say I'm not funny. Good trade-off.

I think everybody should just calm down and don't think too much about such things. I honestly don't know how a little joking post can bring up DPRK and propaganda. Also, did you notice that DPRK starts with D? ;) And your jokes aren't funny. ;) Just like mine. ;)

My sense of humor tends to the droll side, and people who don't know me well often miss it, and sometimes take offense. A friend of mine told me that he initially thought I was a humorless stuffed shirt, until he eventually realized I was constantly joking :-)

I remember reading your answer on how you generate income. You said you bought high and sold low. I suffered several losses before I realised your particular sense of humor.

My superpower is control over the stock market. Immediately after I buy a stock, the stock tanks. Immediately after I sell, it zooms upwards. It's proof that I'm living in a simulation!

IF YOU'RE READING THIS, YOU'VE BEEN IN A SIMULATION FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS NOW. WE'RE TRYING A NEW TECHNIQUE. WE DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS MESSAGE WILL END UP IN YOUR DREAM, BUT WE HOPE WE'RE GETTING THROUGH.

Oberon-2 has had some versions that used a garbage collector. 
Have their been other languages - besides D - that compiled to 
object code and used a garbage collector?

You can use a GC with C++ and you can compile Java to native code ahead of time. The distinctions aren't really that sharp, it just depends on how you use it.

After I posted I wanted to edit it to add "disregarding JIT in conjunction with a VM like JVM or .NET". Have there been any C++ compilers that used a garbage collector? What I was getting at was, if someone says "I've got a systems level project I want to play around with, however GC is not a deal breaker for me. ", it seems like they are making an implied reference to D as I assume "systems level" means "compile to object code and link with linker to executable".

Search this forum or HN for Paulo and Oberon, you'll find plenty of posts like this, where he lists all of them: :) https://forum.dlang.org/post/mioycakymbdpzrymehlc forum.dlang.org

Oops, I forgot that Go was garbage collected.

Read the parent post.
This was in fact the problem: it was not obvious that there is a parent post.
