Thanks for the links. Interesting but I do not concur with those 
statements of Bjarne.

Multiple times it has been proven already to be FUD. The chances 
of success has not so much to do with the languages from to, but 
much more on the approach, the availability of verification 
devices etc.
Also here in this forum multiple times has been reported great 
success with transitioning to D from other languages.

What make D interesting imo is that it is very broad in fit for 
purpose. This is were it hugely is distinct from any other 
language i'm aware of.
