Although, I kind of wish that the digital mars newsgroups moved to dsource.org, or
that dsource.org somehow links to digitalmars.
Being new to the D Programming Language, dsource.org was the first place I went to
for information. And seeing that most activity occurred 2 years ago, I thought
the language was dead. I didn't give up and that's how I found digitalmars
I suspect most newbies will check out dsource.org and be turned off by how
outdated the posts are, and quit there. Since first impressions are important, if
they get past that initial hurdle, they may always have in the back of their mind
that D is a toy language and never give it any serious thought as to how to use
this language in their current project at work.
I suspect that this happens, and that would be too bad.
