I think D is going to stay in the top segment now, because of
C++xx. Many people are seeking a new programming language and D
is one refuge. Also that it got into the GNU compiler collection
D can copy the success of Python, being expressive and simple.
Hopefully, the D community keep D simple and do not add a lot of
crud like in C++xx. Aesthetic design in programming languages
matters, just as they do with cars.
Speaking of Rust, I think Rust will remain a niche language
because it is a bit too complicated than what benefits it gives.
A programmer who only used Python before is going to choose D
over Rust and that's where the masses are.
Keep up the good work.
