Since I am mainly a C# developer, I can tell you what convinced 
- D code looks 90% like C#, it's very easy to learn;
- native compilation;
- templates as generics on steroids;
- compatibility with C;
- memory allocation control;
- compile time reflection;
- mixins;
- a better approach to operator overloading;
- unittest integration
- inline assembler;

A good resource is also the comparison made by Adam Wilson at 
- slides -
- talk -

Anyway, don't point him to, this 
page is full of lies :)

Unfortunately, the list of what's not convincing me is much 
longer, I don't want to discourage him.
