I'll rather have knowledgeable people make the wrong decision and 
be responsible for fixing it than a majority of ignorant people 
vote for a mess no one likes to fix.

  That's that's a very common situation out there.

Even then D is a great language due to the experience and thought 
that went into it by the initiator and contributors...not by 
majority vote.


The rest are ecosystem problems which is not a D specific issue 
so I'll let go.
