Disclaimer: built a business on D and very happy about it.
Well it's simple, you are creating a heavy-UI type program and D
has normal support for OO (Java-like), and there is ablog about D
+ GTK already: https://gtkdcoding.com/
_Subtyping_ is pretty much essential for UI.
This very page has subtyping through CSS.
An editor like GIMP can completely exist with a GC... you're not
doing it on embedded micro-controllers. I'd be surprise if you
ever need to go @nogc except on image loaders at times.
D is productive, and has relatively terrible (low-key) marketing
which should lead the astute observer to correct bias - in order
to beat the competition.
