Oddly enough, I was specifically wondering if anyone used it for 
data analytics last night.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I am trying to understand where 
the D community is at and what people are doing with it. I want 
to have my own personal vision of D and surrounding tools. It 
might give me motivation to build specific tools when I run into 
problems because they would help other people instead of just 
slogging through it.
