Mac OS X x86.
ARMv7, (UNIX-based).
Linux x64.
JVM.

Probably a D-to-C++/Python translator?

How well D will work on 64 bit systems of the future depends a lot on if they'll remain optimized for 32 bit operations or not.

I am still worried about 16bit :)

would like to D has been a universal language

Pardon my ignorance, but who still uses 16-bit?  I thought even most embedded systems in this day and age are at least 32-bit.

I sometimes still work on old point of sale systems that run MS-DOS.

But without the ability to use it on game-consoles/embedded-cpus/microcontrollers, it'll never be worthwhile for most developers. They'd be forced into just one platform, the PC (In this case, I'm including Mac as a "Personal Computer").

Yes, but D is explicitly *not* supposed to be for legacy systems.  Of course, I wouldn't mind 16-bit support if it only affects things at an implementation level, but I absolutely don't want the language to accumulate a bunch of spec-level artifacts from this.
