I use Tango, and have used it to develop utilities for my company. I
tried using Phobos for about a week, but found the lack of support for
socket and process I/O didn't fit my needs. I'm sure it's improved since
then (about 2 years ago), but it would be impossible for me to switch
back now :)
I contribute regularly to Tango, and I enjoy that aspect of it. I also
find the developers more accessible and focused on practical matters
versus not-yet-proven radical language features. I'm not saying this in
a negative way -- I think the steps Walter and Andrei are taking towards
making D2 suitable for future needs are worth while -- but when one has
to get work done, one needs to use something that works now :)
