Re: Nice move

"Working with Rust I've come to appreciate the wisdom of including garbage collection in Java and C#. Manual memory management is simply something humans aren't good at and is best left to the computer."

Rust and C++ do have automatic memory management. Just not necessarily garbage collection. RAII / smart pointers means that you should never be explicitly calling delete. Or the code is generally not exception safe in C++.

To be fair even C has automatic memory management if you bolt on Boehm's GC. But I suppose that is beyond the point ;)
