    So vim gets neovim, and now emacs needs to remacs. But remember, VIM IS SUPERIOR IN EVERY WAY! And there is no changing that.

      Please, re-read the article. He never said that Rust has a bigger ecosystem than C/C++, he said it's rapidly GROWING.

Everybody with high school level math skills is aware of the limitations of relative measurements, but Rust is well beyond the point at which the statement "Rust is rapidly growing." would have been meaningless.

          Some people are still working on BSD you know, talk about a waste of time!

          Bottom line is: indirect contributions to stuff that matters to you are unpredictable and often surprisingly far reaching. I hate that people spend time on BSD because what is the effing point, but so many of their good ideas (and some time just code, think BPF...) make it to Linux which I care about.

            You're very blind. There is benefit in a project like this. Working on projects like this can open the door to expanding the number of libraries available on Crates.io to solve similar problems. Remacs could split emacs up into generic modules that would be useful in a wide range of projects. If everyone went with your point of view, science and technology would never progress. There are always discoveries being found in places that people consider to 'provide no tangible benefit to anyone'.

                These people also work on openssh, libressl, etc. Waste of time...

                    Apart from not obeying usual text-editing conventions. The insertion point is supposed to go between characters (or before the first character, or after the last character); it is not on a character.
