    I tried searching, nothing. Maybe Rust itself (but I don't need Rust itself):

    In the same vein. I don't want C++, I want what C++ can do for me.

    @Demolishun you get it. What good is a language as cool as rust where nobody actually manages do build anything really meaningful

    @kobenz to be fair it took a while for C devs to embrace C++. When they did they still wrote C in C++. Rust does not have a transition stage. You can't write other languages in Rust. I think Rust gaining some small impactful projects will help. I don't think you can force it unless you make government projects want contractors to only use memory safe tooling. So it will probably find its way into embedded and military applications to start.

    Nope, it seems the Rust compiler was originally written in OCaml

    Rust initial release was less than ten years ago. Give it a fuckin chance.

    @Lensflare so I can use C++ syntax is Rust?

    @cafecortado aren't most things bootstrapped at some point?

    I can write C code in C++. That was the point of the transition.

    @Demolishun I thought you meant to say that it’s not possible write compilers or interpreters for other languages in Rust.

    I was gonna say Veloren, though not indispensable, because it's such a cute little game.

    But then I remembered the combat still sucks so fuck it a million times until they fix that shit.

    1. indispensability is not a good thing, it's an unnecessary risk
    2. Rust is younger than today's core infrastructure
    3. Servo is standing to become the second open option in a market dominated by Google, which is a pretty important social role for software to occupy today.

    @lorentz huh? what? Rust's about the same age as clojure, go, nim...
