    Phoronix: Rust Code For The Linux Kernel Updated With More Features Implemented

    Miguel Ojeda has posted the newest patch series implementing the Rust programming language infrastructure and initial sample code for the Linux kernel...

    Once this lands, I might dabble for the first time in Linux kernel module development. Quite excited for this to land

      That alone is a worthy reason to start the era of kernel version 6. ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽ‰

        Hopefully the fate of another operating system's version 6.0 can be avoided

          This is too subtle for me. What OS are you thinking about?

            Windows Vista was NT version 6.0.

            There were many reasons for the bad reputation it suffered from. Some were Microsoft's "fault" due to the internal changes that actually warranted the major version number increase. Said changes were mainly security-related, and made quite a bit of software/drivers break. That took time to fix.
            OEMs were also at fault since they loved to put the OS on hardware that was woefully under-powered for the task.

              If you want to learn about the kernel internals, that's cool. Otherwise, you should take a look at what you can accomplish with eBPF. It's a safer way to handle a variety of tasks, and IIRC has broad & growing language support.

                eBPF isn't good enough to write drivers and has it's own weird restrictions.

                  If things go through and MGLRU Preemt-RT and Rust realy get merged Linux 6.0 will be a milestone, 2 major apiยดs and a new Laguage api what is more worthy of a Major Release Herunterladen.jpg

                    Yes, of course. But it sounded as if Alliancemd didn't actually need to write drivers, per se.

                    Anyway, just mentioning it for people's awareness. Its safety & security benefits over native kernel development are real. You can still use Rust, either way:
