I don't disbelieve you, but I also really don't want to learn Go
so that I can understand what D is missing. Do any of these
ever result in arewexyet type webpages, or even wiki lists of
that D would need to be as good at some role as some other
Say, a category of "D Gaps", and pages of the pattern, "I looked
using D for <purpose>, and I missed these conveniences: [list]".
1. data science
3. machine learning
4. scripting Microsoft applications through COM
5. writing CGI scripts
6. writing an Apache module
7. rewriting Python and Perl sysadmin scripts
8. mobile app development
9. desktop app development
10. quick CLI tools that fetch some webpages
I've done a lot of these but for bioinformatics f.e. my list
of features ends at:
* they use 'FASTA files'
* they want fast regular expressions
* some preferences stemming from them not being 'real
not pejoratively, but look at

about scientists using Python.
I bet that a lot of people would deny that #4 or #5 are even valid
things to want to do in the current millennium.

Are you sure that 'STANDARD developers' even exist? This might be
unfair but I see a lot of solipsism in complaints like this. To
a kinder way, I think you are underestimating how valuable your
experience is in your own industry.
