Respect to Andrei for his decision, and I pray that his good intentions are sufficiently rewarded.

Hopefully companies which are interested in leveraging D's performance/syntax combination will consult with the Foundation and so the finances (both the Foundation's and thereby Andrei's) will be taken care of. The Python foundation seems to have done that nicely for Python. While I'm still "getting my D-legs" (< https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/sea_legs) I do think D is the right way to combine Python-like high level syntax and C/C++-level power. I tried Cython but somehow it didn't click for me. And as for Go and Rust and all those other contenders, naah... [Is it even possible to write a Go/Rust compiler in Go/Rust? Or have they tried?] Of course, all this is made possible by the great D community, the "Demos" (https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/demos#Latin).
