It's now #4 on the front page of Hacker News:


The comments on HN are useless though, everybody went for the "D versus Python" thing and seem to complain that it's doing a D/Python benchmark while only talking about D optimization...even though optimizing D is the whole point of the article. In the same way they rant against the fact that many iterations on the D script are shown while it is obviously to give different tricks while being clear on what trick gives what.

I am disappointed because there are so many good things to say about this, so many good questions or remarks to make when not familiar with the language, and yet all we get is "Meh, this benchmark shows nothing of D's speed against Python".
