Nim programming language finally hit 1.0

It is kinda strange to see, how discussion went from "Nim hitting 
1.0" to "what I dislike about D" in a matter of few posts. 
Obviously programming languages are tools and there is no ideal 
programming language. D is opinionated like many other languages, 
the design and most of the compiler work is mainly done by few 
core members of the team. While I think it would be nice to have 
Rust's automatic memory management at compile time or Go's 
awesome standard library or Zig's error handling enforcement in 
D, in reality core members won't be available to keep up with all 
new trends in programming languages. You don't have to use D for 
everything, use D for stuff that D fits nicely. Or go make D3 
with all the features you like (you can use D2 to bootstrap the 
compiler, use LLVM as a backend and etc).
