Rust is...something old made new.
[Dec 30 2016]
I can’t pretend to be as smart as those guys. I like Rust because it’s wicked fast and I don’t run into the errors I would doing the same things in C or C++. Well, not exactly the same because Rust won’t let me do that.
Rust is like an improvement on what’s been fractured for 40 years. I hope it doesn’t (or at least the community doesn’t) go the way of Haskell though. Not everyone is familiar with higher math or likes to use it day to day just to get things done. A user on reddit sugested that there should be a Rust for the Rest of Us, or a Rust for Script Kiddies book. I really look forward to something like that.
