nice! I love seeing tutorials for D stuff, and GtkD is something 
I used to use for GUI applications a lot too. I only skimmed over 
it a bit, maybe you should also add a post about how to use GtkD 
with dub instead of manually invoking the compiler. I think dub 
is a lot more beginner friendly and easier to setup + users will 
probably want to add some dependencies in the future of their app.

When I tried it with dub it was just adding the dependency and 
everything worked on Linux, but I couldn't make it run on windows 
with that. (though I only used the app on Linux so that was not a 
problem for me)

Anyway, great seeing someone making GtkD tutorials, keep it up +1
