Mozilla Continues Advancing, Promoting Rust Language
Phoronix: Mozilla Continues Advancing, Promoting Rust Language
The Mozilla developers driving the Rust Programming Language have released version 0.8 of their language and compiler. Rust 0.8 has more than 2,200 changes with many bug-fixes and a few language-related changes...
To me, Rust seems like a Scala for C
As a programmer, I'm sick of having to deal with so many programming languages. I remember the times of CP/M and its Basic interpreter with nostalgia...
A good slogan would be: Rust, the "new kid on the block".
I agree, there are way too many languages out there that are general purpose. I have no major issues with languages designed for a specific purpose (such as database languages or robot languages and so on) but there are dozens of languages out there that could just simply "go away". Off the top of my head, ruby, D, and delphi are a few that don't need to exist. Obviously if we were to "vote a language off the island", there's always going to be somebody upset about it. But IMO it's all about what languages accomplish their goals the best.

Multiprocess by default having good scalability on many (2-8-16-32-...) cores.
Will be nice to have a browser/OS compiled in Rust.
Imagine if the Linux kernel were ported to Rust...
I'd say Python should go before Ruby, I really don't like languages that are dependant on white space.

That's pretty much it. This looks exactly like the choice that C developers need.
