It feels like D has not overcome at least two major issues in the public mind, the built-in GC


D is a pragmatic language aimed toward writing fast code, fast. Garbage collection has proved to be a smashing success in the industry, providing productivity and memory-safety to programmers of all skill levels. D's GC implementation follows in the footsteps of industry giants without compromising expert's ability to tweak even further.



That's what we should be saying every single time someone mentions GC. Including it was the RIGHT DECISION and we should own that.

Yes, absolutely! It's the reason I chose to start writing programs in D, because I had a background in C and Java, and wanted a fast, compiled language that would take care of the details for me. You can write programs quickly, and it's quick enough when running them, and can of course be tuned further through managing allocations/collections of the GC etc.
