Is AWS sponsoring Rust? Only a bit – and so is Microsoft Azure

The Rust programming language might endure. There’s a lot going for it, and it’s still early days. Plenty of time for compilers to mature.

It’s done good things for Firefox.

MS’s use of it, if that ever does happen, would be interesting, because they’d likely put resources into improving it. It’s also likely under the current management that they’d push the fruits of that back to the original Rust project. They made a big code contribution to the Git project some time ago, prior to their Github purchase, so their recent form on this is good.
