    As I previously said, many of the advantages you gave for Rust are things which C++ can do through the appropriate classes & methods + compiler warnings & static analysis.

    All else being equal, is Rust or C++ code probably more secure? Sure, I'd go with Rust on that. But the main reason I'd consider Rust for new projects is just the eye-watering complexity of C++. And with Rust in vogue, it's probably easier to find people who either know it or want to learn it.
    Yeah, and compare a programmer with 1 year of Rust experience vs 1 year of C++ experience. Who is likely going to write a program that is more secure?

    You might be able to write secure code in Rust, but you got 20 years of experience.

      Going by history AMD is going to wait until every implementation somehow only supports NVIDIA and doesn't work on their cards then try to catch up while Intel invents their own stack.
