"-betterC"? "D runtime"? There's been a lot of talk about the potential of D to replace C for systems programming. I'll explain what it all means, in practical, concrete terms. I'll show what works today, what might be possible in the future, and what needs to be done to get there. Extended Description: This talk will contain some background theory, discussion of different approaches for systems programming in D, and highlights of some real projects.
