    Nah, (iron) ore IS something like rust (not exactly)... But I found it fitting, too.

        Clever names coming from the Rust community, I have to say.

          A boot process that comes from the mainframes during the '60's.

            To be honest I may be a minority but I agree. "Rust" seems like a wrong name for a language as it's something undesired on your metals...

              Oreoboot

              That's also what I though it said in the headline.

                I agree. As someone who welds, all rust means to me is "bust out the wire wheel".

                  I really agree, Calx would have been so much better, Rust is iron calx. Plus it sounds more "computery" than rust.

                    I disagree. It suggests the self-consciousness that any language and paradigm is destined for eventual ruin. Maybe it's also, as a low-level systems lang, a sly critique of coding "close to the metal", a necessary evil which it seeks to improve (and succeeds IMO -- it's C for the 21st century).

                    I hate what it's done with the word "rusty" though.

                      Not always. When copper "rusts", you leave that in place because it protects what's underneath
                      It does nothing to convey the whole thing is built around safety, I'll give you that.
