General Development For years the development scene has been dominated by the C family of languages, primarily C itself and its immediate successor C++. Recent years have given rise to other C-descendents, however, such as Sun's Java and Microsoft's C#.

While this looks great and all, it seems that its unnecessary. There has always been this speration betwee asm|C|C++|C#|JAVA and to squeez D between C++ and C# seems a stretch especially since people such as myself are just starting to enjoy c#. This is a strech because C++ is fast and low level, and even though c# is interpreted, it is still a fast enough interpretation to be low enough (I.E. Its not java). The ONLY way i see myself typing a line of that D (my current gpa) code would be if Microsoft threw it in as a core language with lots of intellisense and documentation in Visual Studio, Which i do assert would not be a bad thing. Who's with me?
