why d4 is better than e4

    No, theoretically e4 is the better move according to several engines, objectively perhaps by a decipawn. But first you have to memorize bulkloads of theory and second its harder to keep your advantage. 1.d4 black has 1...Nf6, 1...d5, 1...e6, 1...d6, and 1...f5 and d6 and e6 are minor responses not major. 1.e4 black has 1...c5, e5, e6, c6, d6, nf6, d5, g6 etc. keep in mind players on the black side vs 1.e4 only need one or 2 responses out of all of them, while white has to know all of them.

    I dont think you can say one opening is better than the other because everyone has there own style of play. The move d4 leads more positional game while e4 is tactical.

    Noone gives the slightest fook about what engines say on openings- unless he is a fool.

    Nice!

    It just depends on your preference and what you feel comfortable with.

    I prefer 1. d4, but some people play 1. c4, 1. Nf3, 1. Nc3, 1. f4 (haven't played against that yet though)
