The reaction in the Go community to this article has been
one would have anticipated. I paraphrase the common theme thus:
successful in the market, D isn't, therefore Go is a better
than D. Go does indeed have much greater market penetration,
leave it as an exercise for the reader to deduce the sophistry,
indeed casuistry, in most of the argumentation.
By this standard, Go is much worse than C++, Java, or even C,
which they pretend to be a better version of.
