People who use Rust seem to really like it but so far I have not done
anything in it. I will take another look if I do any bare metal coding.
In contrast I use Go for almost all my own coding now. I am not entirely
happy with it but the ecosystem around it is great. And the really nice
thing about it is that not only I can cross-compile programs but also,
I believe it is the only compiled language (much more so than C) where
a lot of stuff just works on on plan9.
