Actually that isn't quite true.
Java's killer feature is consistent simplicity. That is how it was
originally sold to great success. The ecosystem and tooling came later.
Also as an FYI, Rust has had significant marketing effort put into it.
Consider its home page, it tells a story to get you into developing code
fast. D's doesn't. It is much better and I think it might be time to
have a complete rethink of D's because the last redesign wasn't all that
different to what it was prior.
