There is a difference between claiming that language A makes
this and that difficult and claiming that language B is better
We have different interpretations of the article. My reading was
"I hate these properties of Go."
If you aren't making a research language (and D most certainly
would fail in that arena) the only thing that matters is how it
fares in a production setting by programmers who do full time
programming in the language.
You're making a big assumption about which programmers and
projects count and which don't. I wonder if outside of Google if
there are even 100 programmers working full time exclusively with
Go. I don't work full time with D, but I work with it a lot, and
I don't see why my experience shouldn't count.
