Citation needed on how garbage collection has been a smashing success based on its merits rather than the merits of the languages that use garbage collection. Python was also a smashing success, but it doesn't use a garbage collector in it's default implementation (CPython). Unless you mean garbage collection as in "not manual memory management"? But that still might not be as simple, because RAII would fall somewhere inbetween.

let's say python is supposed to offer slow execution. So, python doesn't prove reference counting is fast (even if it is possible in theory). D on the other hand provides binaries who are expected to execute fast.
