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#.

Slightly OT: gnome && D
by julienp on Mon 19th Apr 2004 08:35 UTC

Does anyone know if the Gnome guys have looked into D as their future language ? Is there any reason why D wouldn't be suitable ? I haven't used D my self, but from looking over the DigitalMars page, it looks quite nice, providing the advantages over C some Gnome people are looking for (higher level than C, garbage collection, ...) And most importantly, there should't be any patent or other legal problems with using it.
