Eh? Why would GDC depend on linux at all? If you disable the GC (and
dependent language functionality), and manage to do something about the
horrible exe bloat, there's no reason it shouldn't be able to target
The obvious advantage over C is the syntax features. Clearly D as a
*language* shouldn't DEPEND on the druntime, other than some language
features that imply GC, like dynamic arrays/etc.

Is the toolchain not capable of producing a working exe without linking any
library? Surely you can write a totally raw app with no libs at all?
(assuming you avoid language features that make implicit druntime calls)
