Re: Rust

rust isn't a panacea.

in my recent professional experience, the code that has has the most catastrophic bugs leaving core dumps and deleted databases has been rust. sure, this is an anecdote but my point is pointing at one small class of bugs that rust does solve and blithely generalizing chanting web scale, er, i mean rust at any class of bugs you can think of isn't correct.

i think rust brings some great safety that other languages haven't brought before, but saying it's a (memory) "safe" language and implying that all rust is safe to run in the general sense is linguistic substitution.
