This is the first in a series of posts introducing D's garbage collection and how it interacts with user code. This one is a basic introduction.

We write a ptt, about GC and D memory management。
But  it is Chinese.

Great post, and the title is gold. Looking forward to the next installments so I learn new things myself, and of course a good reference in this "GC is bad" debate.

Whenever the GC comes up, I wonder about the "conservative" part. As far as I know there were attempts to make the GC "precise". What is the current status about that? If it is the subject of a future part of the series, I can wait. ;)

I would love to have a post on that in the future, but someone else will have to write it. It's beyond my ken. The last I heard about the precise GC was in a recent post here from Jeremy DeHaan [1].

BTW, if anyone has anything they'd like to contribute to the GC series, I'm more than willing to discuss it.
