Attention-grabbing! I ponder how this will likely prove. There isn’t numerous Rust wisdom within the current Firmware engineer group, however there’s numerous speak about Rust changing C for low-level techniques tasks. Whilst one Microsoft safety researcher has posted a weblog about Rust, I truly don’t see Microsoft embracing Rust. They have got to retrain their current C builders to make use of a brand new language, and so they’d desire a language that they might keep an eye on the route of. I think the Microsoft techniques staff, if compelled emigrate from their C89-era compiler to one thing fashionable, would more than likely use their CheckedC or Venture Verona. I would really like to be confirmed improper. đŸ™‚
