Looking at the statistics, if we assume all those 72 votes are for
'None - Not likely to use D anytime soon', we get these nice numbers:

D2                                       43 %
Both D1 and D2 fairly equally             3 %
D1 - Not likely to use D2 anytime soon   28 %
D1 - Likely to switch to D2 soon          6 %
D1 - Likely to do both D1 and D2 soon     5 %
None - Not likely to use D anytime soon   9 %
None - Likely to use D2 soon              6 %
None - Likely to use D1 soon              0 %
None - Likely to use both D1 and D2 soon  0 %

Honestly, I find this to seem more likely as a serious result.
That said, I do not expect 43% of programmers to be using D at the
moment. :P
