No problem with FF3. You should upgrade FF4 to FF3 I guess. :P

I'm very surprised that there are so many Germans who use D. Maybe the German D book is a reason for that. I don't know but it's pretty cool.

Dear D Community, is it reasonable to learn D? I've found a lot of good points for D but I've found a lot of negative points too. I believe that I needn't to list all the point for D but I want to give a few examples against learning D I've read in some German and English boards
