I think that too!
It would have been hard to see this when D came out; Java was on
a roll, C++ seemed to be waning, and Moore's Law was still going
strong. DasBetterC is, as its name suggests a better C, much more
so than C++ IMO. I believe DasBetterC would have lessened the
need for Rust. Ah, counterfactuals...
There's still room in the world for DasBetterC, so I hope the
development continues. It's great that many of the annoying
restrictions have been lifted.
