64bit - both windows and linux.

personally I don't see a point in JVM/.NET - One of the best things 
about D is that you get the ease of use of Ruby/python/etc with the 
benefits of native compiling like in c/c++. Why throw that away and make 
yet another version of Java/C# ?

The ones I wouldn't mind seeing in order of descending preference:
windows 64 bit
linux 64 bit
freebsd 32 bit
.net
jvm

However, if implementing any of this takes resources away from continuing
work on the existing platforms, I'd say don't worry about it; Windows
and Linux 32 bit are certainly good enough for me.
