Personally, I'm not sure that much is gained in pitting Go against D
precisely because they're so different that they're likely to appeal to
completely different sets of people.
I also do not regard Go as a competitor to D. It's more of a
competitor to Java and Ruby.
How is Go a competitor to Ruby? I cannot think of a single parameter
where Go and Ruby don't take the exact opposite approach!(other than
the obvious ones like "both use require the programmer to write code")
I think it's more of a competitor to Rails. Ruby as a language is as you
say very different from Go. Incidentally, it shows that it is possible
to make a language simple without crippling it.
... but efficiency. Ruby is 50 times slower than all languages,
