I don't agree with all of that.

C# is certainly one of 'great' programming languages.

Particulary because of its extensive framework library, which D 
could never compete with.

Also, the  move to open-source, and the move to cross platform 
with dotnet, makes C# (dotnet) a very attractive option for many 
use cases, and will certainly see the language being used more 
and more...

I don't necessarily have a problem (anymore) with it being tied 
to Microsoft (because of the above). Also, Microsoft can afford 
to employ 'the best', which is what they indeed do, and which is 
why C# is what it is today.

What attracts me to D, is the inability to program outside of a 
class in C#. I think they are trying to find ways to make this 
happen, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

If only D 'really did' support OOP, as it claims, it would be 
more useful to me.
