I have a eerie suspicion that D zealots constantly register new names, and post crap like this trying to stir up support for their fledgling language.

Sheesh. hype.

Uh chill out C Junkie, I've seen this guy before, and he is mentioning it cause it is on Slashdot. Everything is gonna be okay man.

Now for some useful content. People write OpenGL and DX stuff just fine in D, thanks to it adhering to C calling conventions. It can be linked with C libraries, however right now I consider it to be a bitch because you have to convert the header file into something that D can understand, and this is a manual process.

It looks like the future of unmanaged application programming, and you have to wonder what took so long to come out with it.
