They are all incredibly incompetent. Get your thinking hat on and plan to join them on the hustings. Crowdfunding as required. Good luck.

Rust: an unwanted emission with poor tooling from a source with a dreadful record in good language design. Appalling choices from a syntactic perspective and an unknowable runtime. Should have done much better.
And C != C++. Writing code in the latter language is more simply saving your code with a.cpp extension. Indeed, this has been the case since the previous millennium.
Eh? Some sources for these claims would be useful. A concrete barge costs beans. I’m pretty confident to have very recently read that spacex no longer even clean the ‘soot’ off their machinery before relaunch. Can I source the last? No. Too late to do the math on the reduced payload proposition but intuition suggests several rather short burns to land is trivial in comparison to launch.
Slightly OT but Pine64 is a fine example of how competing teams can fail to deliver. Thinking especially of the PinePhone - virtually unusable despite apparently having multiple distros available. And, going forward, there seems to be no future for anything powered by an A64. All but obsolete. A look at the specification gap is instructive as well. 2 and 5 MP cameras in 2022? And these barely capable of capturing images with any colour fidelity. Very sad but just not enough guidance and support from the hardware team. Not sure how they stay afloat. And I write as an owner of the original A64 pine sbc, so familiar with the history.
