I don't think it's that good as a motto. A good motto should serve two purposes:

I thought you were writing Ruby and was like "realiable? Efficient? Ruby? Dafaq?!" XD

I kinda already done this ;-)

'Create interesting software more easily'.

Isn't that what ALL programmers are trying to do?

Isn't that what ALL language developers are trying to do?

Isn't that what would motivate others to use it?

Is there anything more 'overarching' than that?

Take it .. before someone else does ;-)

That's a little bit too overarching ;)

ALL languages strive for that, so it doesn't set D apart. It also doesn't provide a rule of thumb as to what the language should and shouldn't do.

This sounds like Crystal. That's another young programing language trying to find its niche and competing with Dlang. But looks like they abandoned their "Fast as C, Slick as Ruby" motto recently.
