I recently tried Nim. The first good impression was quickly 
replaced by disappointment.

No nested types, constants and functions. Poor generics and 
templates (but macros are great). Primitive modules system. 
Unclear error messages.

But. Nim's GC (including boehm) is much faster then D's one. And 
Nim compiler creates very compact binaries.
