Is the D language a credible alternative to Java and C++? What will it take to become a credible alternative? Should I bother learning it? Does it deserve evangelizing?
The main reason I ask is that with the new c++ standard (c++0x) almost here, its clear to me that the language has gone well past the point of no return with respect to anyone ever understanding it. I know that c/c++ will never die but at some point we need to move on. Even COBOL had its day and Java has in many respects undone c++. So what's next? Does D fill the bill?
