The new GC in Go 1.5 seems interesting. What they say about is certainly interesting.

"To create a garbage collector for the next decade, we turned to an algorithm from decades ago. Go's new garbage collector is a concurrent, tri-color, mark-sweep collector, an idea first proposed by Dijkstra in 1978."

I think this was talked about in general. If I remember correctly the consensus was that

1. D's GC is really primitive (70's style stop the world) and there's a lot of room for improvement

2. However, D has much more important problems currently than a slow GC, e.g. std.allocator, a GC-less phobos, smaller .o files for embedded systems, A better DMD with DDMD, etc.

The reason Go has a better GC than D is that Go users have no choice but to use the GC, while D users have a bunch more options.

That's just bad excuses.
