vibe-d and hunt helped compete with asp.net and spring, it's a
known fact, the GC helps D web servers handle terabytes of heap
memory and millions of transactions per seconds, also a known
it also helped compete with the simplicity of go net/http, a very
known fact, obviously
you are looking at the past, when you want to be relevant
tomorrow, you look forward
comparing to C# with what strengths?
there is not JIT and no low latency GC, you'll be forever a worst
version of C# if you keep that argument
and anyways, comparing with other languages is a little bit
what are out strenghts, and what problems can we solve?
