There have to be like ... three or four orders of magnitude more #C developers than rust developers out there.
I mean, I understand what they're saying, and I don't entirely disagree, but it sure does seem early for that claim.
@phooky I'm guessing that the only reason rust developers might fare better is that they're a self-selecting set.
Also I totally agree that we need more systems languages and I'm 100% down with them being type safe, reference-safe, etc. I do wonder whether rust is that genre of languages' final form, though; I kind of feel like it's more like the first solid try that hasn't been just a bad idea to begin with.
@phooky Let me clarify that I mean that I think that most programmers have very little business writing kernel code whether they're in rust or C either one; it's just that proportionally there are more rust programmers who might be kernel programmers because they're a self-selecting set (in Spring of 2021).
