    Because Rust is a highly concurrent language. So it MAY perform better.
    In my personal experience working with multi threading (in C#), it also makes the code a bit harder to follow in some scenarios.

        Any chance this could make its way into redox?

          Rust is also nice because it removes bad pointers and by default ensures memory safety. This is nice for users because it means less crashes and bugs for things written in pure rust. Unless you have no idea how to manage memory and turn the default off or if you are intentionally subverting your program. The later is unlikely(unless you're mozilla) the earlier is possible but not going to be common because defaults.

            +1

            I'm with Openbox in Antergos and Manjaro. Openbox is the best for me.

              AMDGPU-PRO open-sources new Vulkan implementation written in Rust and publishes it to Mesa!

                I'll see that and raise you a "SystemD, Mesa rewritten in Rust, ported to BeOS reimplementation HaikuOS"

                    planetguy, rudregues, perceptia's main goal is to be good for power users but new-commer-friendly at the same time so its default configuration will probably be very similar to Openbox. See the bug #1:

                    https://github.com/perceptia/perceptia/issues/1

                    Feel free to open issue and describe features from Openbox you would like to see in perceptia here:

                      That would be awesome!
