What, seriously?!?

That's the thing about C++: The right way is the obscure way, and the straightforward way is the wrong way. And yesterday's right way is today's wrong way. And apparently (it would seem), the only way NOT to completely fuck *everything* up is to become an expert on every corner of the language, and STAY an expert on all the latest changes. In the immortal words (and voice) of Duke Nukem: "What a mess!"

Seriously, I don't care about the political incorrectness of bashing or comparing to other languages, this right here is and always was D's killer feature, the whole reason I got into it in the first place and have stayed: D takes all the current (and former!) application domains of C/C++, and brings to it basic programmer sanity. 'Nuff said.
