Considering it won't be available for Windows, I'd guess not very 
well and it will remain a niche language until it does. There's a 
reason D shot up in popularity after it started to support 
windows more thoroughly.

Sure you can say that since it will be open source, people can 
create Windows versions. But without Apple merging changes 
upstream (which they have never said they would do) I really 
don't see those efforts lasting long before people realize the 
effort involved probably isn't worth it.
