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 :)
