[OT] C# scores again for game development
Since this is one area where D could eventually replace C++, I've 
decided to post it here.

So after Sony decided to make use of C#/Mono for the PS Vita SDK, 
Nintendo has decided to do the same by supporting Unity for the 
new Wii U.

Note that it is only the scripting part of Unity that is C#/Mono. 
The core engine and editor is C++.

I didn't. That's very interesting to hear.

The core engine is C++.

Mono takes care of allowing any .NET language to be used as 
scripting language, with C#, JavaScript and Boo having the main 
roles, while compiling them AOT to native code as well.

UnityScript - not Javascript. They resemble each other but 
UnityScript has classes and supports static types etc. Much 
better in my opinion.
