I hope that's sarcasm
Rust is more of a maintenance burden than the competition for the following reasons:
* Rust has no ABI stability, meaning every app you deploy will have its own private runtime (aka. bloat)
* Static linking is encouraged over dynamic in 2021? That means more rebuilds/updates as a developer
* Every dependency you include in an app YOU have to recompile/maintain (not the OS or Linux distro)
* Created by Mozilla. They change things constantly, even when they're already decent, look at Firefox!
If I choose to use the managed APIs included with .NET then I only have to worry about my own code being secure, as the runtime itself will be centrally updated with the system, just like with Java, Python, PHP and many other options.
However, if I create apps using Rust, I will forever have to track CVEs in every dependency and am now responsible for rebuilding the entire project every single time there's a relevant fix. That's a downgrade even compared to C/C++ where I can choose to link to system-provided libraries which are managed by the OS vendor or Linux distribution, reducing the maintenance burden greatly.
It seems that in 2021 the hipsters are running the asylum and everyone has forgotten about how long-term software maintenance works.
