In my almost 10 years of using D I have not come across any 
compiler bugs that I couldn't easily work-around tbh.

Even more so today I rarely get experience one and I have 
multiple different types of D projects with thousands of lines of 

And that's despite me almost exclusively using Windows which is 
often the platform left behind by the D community.

Like every time I see someone reporting a bug for the compiler 
here on the forums it's always some obscure scenario that isn't a 
scenario you usually get into and often there are work-arounds.

That isn't to say D doesn't have problems etc. but I think your 
little graphic is exaggerating a lot about the state of D.
