I wouldn't say they have or should have a sense of crisis, the 
language itself is improving on a day-to-day basis but it isn't 
gaining popularity. I initially came in excited learning D 
because I thought that having a small ecosystem would just be a 
minor pain, but now I realize it's not minor -- it's pretty 
major. This is not to say D isn't a good language, it certainly 
is pretty good, but it just needs a bigger ecosystem. The 
community itself is great, no weirdos in it like Rust, but it 
just needs to be bigger.

I am actually taking a computer science class and I need to 
create desktop apps to pass and get through school. I thought 
this would be possible with D, but it has turned out to be a 
massive pain, so this is why I am switching to Java.

I think D may be one of those languages that eventually blows up 
like Rust because it's honestly great (it feels like a native 
Java some times), they just need to work on _marketing_ and 
_strengthening_ the ecosystem.

Some corporate backing (RedHat, for example) would also be great 
since many people are working on it for free, and thus lacking in 

anyways I know nobody cares about my opinion, and hopefully this 
didn't come across disrespectful
