So much disinformation.

Here the native code compilers for C#.






Running on production embedded hardware,


Apparently the majority of the games running in that Nintendo 
toy, that has broken all sale records, happen to use Unity in 
about 30% of their titles.


Another graveyard irrelevant technology that besides Nintendo, is 
the tier 1 for Sony, Google and Microsoft gaming systems and 
AR/VR platforms, alongside Unreal.

Looks pretty much alive to me.

D also compiles to LDC bitcode and GCC gimple, and has a runtime.

Should we also consider it not a systems language then?

Don't let the hatred and lack of knowledge for other stacks cloud 
your judgement.

It steers people away from D when false statements are being done 
about the ecosystems they know quite well, turning on their 
defences and thus stop listening on what D is actually supposed 
to be better on.
