I don't know if D has a motto. If it does, it aint' that great, cause I can't remember what it is.

Same as above, for every programming language I know of (except I think C++ has something.. about.. something .. I can't really remember).

Anyways...after reading Dennis Ritchies' account in relation to the creation of C, he mentions they just wanted to "create interesting software more easily".

I propose this as D's motto: 'Create interesting software more easily'.

Such a motto seems to fit very well with everything I know about D.

It's also a statement about D, now, and in the future (e.g. for those who don't seem to know what D's vision is ...)

It's also a statement that provides guidance, to would-be contributors.

And of course, such a motto serves as a great marketing tool.

I like it. Hard to let go of my 2 current favorites: "Do it in D" or "Just D it", but I think this is just a better motto ^^

I could see this be the official new motto for D as well. It was "Fast code, fast" before but they wanted to change it so I would be for this one.

There is one, it's on the main page:

"Fast code, fast."

https://dlang.org/

Unfortunately, thanks to the STD board, it is not true the moment you write that line:

import std;

So just use D, and that motto will stay true! don't listen to GC advocators and that motto will stay true!

I put this in another thread, but "from prototype to(through?) production"

"D" is used as code for male genitals in informal communication… Any motto with "D" in it will be subject for ridicule.

I didn't think of that either, as I am Norwegian, but then I saw people making fun of D on some website... :-)
