After many years of waiting, version 1.0 of the Rust programming language has finally been released. The Rust home page describes Rust as "a systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents nearly all segfaults, and guarantees thread safety."
Thanks to the hard work of noted Rust core team members Yehuda Katz and Steve Klabnik, Rust is now poised to become a serious competitor to established systems programming languages like C and C++.
The announcement has brought much jubilation to the followers of Rust, who have been eagerly awaiting this milestone release for so long. With only 1,940 open issues and over 11,500 issues already closed, Rust is finally ready for users to build fantastically reliable software systems using it.
And you have clearly supplied unquestionable evidence in response to the original question (which is still the title of the post).
I merely pointed out that something that's brand new, and doesn't provide unquestionable technical advantages, should at least come with a name that makes PHBs feel good when they present their budgets. I'm sorry if my reality offends you, but it contains lots of really dumb PHBs and billions in advertising dollars.
I was making a joke about part of your of your troll post, not making any effort to defend Rust. Even if I wanted to defend it -- and I don't, because I don't care for Rust anyway -- I wouldn't be wasting the time doing it to you, because you entered the conversation with heavy bias to begin with. Your subject was a question, sure, but then you followed it with a bunch of loaded hostility that essentially said "I have already formed an opinion about this and decided my language is superior, JUST TRY to prove me wrong, I WANT TO ARGUE"
Hell, you're still doing it. My comment went off on a tangent based on a small part of your post, because I wasn't interested in taking your bait, so of course your response attempted to steer it back toward your original trolling so that you can proclaim the superiority of your language of choice. Thing is, I don't even care about that. If Rust works for someone, cool. If it doesn't for someone else, that's cool too. I don't really care for either C++ or Rust (I'd rather see more usage of D), so if that's the argument you want (and it seems to be), you're better off looking elsewhere.
I just saw the silly "Rust is a bad name lol" thing and thought it would be funny to follow the absurd argument to its extreme.
> you can proclaim the superiority of your language of choice
That would be Verilog and various scripting ones, making you whole point moot.I'm sorry if you thought I was a trolling zealot; I have not stake in the whole Rust/C argument.
