Yes, absolutely!  I made the move from C++ to C# about 15 years 
ago.  The C# ecosystem is really a pretty good place to be.  But 
its metaprogramming capabilities, while once competitive, are now 
pretty unimpressive.  The programming language state-of-the-art 
has come a long way in the last 20 years (even if most people are 
still using old tech.)  The D language's CFTE is really THE game 
changer.  I know of nothing else like it, and I could make some 
really good use of that in my C# code base...

So I'm using D for some new projects.  Of course, it has some 
other pretty innovative things too.  For example, the scope(exit) 
construct.  That's soooo much better than needing to enclose 
things in layer after layer of try-catch blocks.  Other languages 
should all be copying this construct.

Anyway, yes, D is a very compelling option for experienced C# 
developers who want to be more on the cutting edge.
