I'm still completely in the excited-newbie honeymoon phase, but writing Rust code feels very wholesome.

I haven’t written anything in it, but I like all the ideas behind it. Slightly different target than Rust with garbage collection.

I remember you were experimenting with Haskell a long time ago, with favorable impressions -- given Rust is in many ways a blend of C++ and Haskell, what lead you to hold out for so long?

I'd the privilege of learning & writing in Ada for safety-critical software at a defence contractor. The design of Ada was so far ahead of its time; it focuses on programming as a human activity, w/ features designed to eliminate/mitigate certain classes of programming errors.

I read the ada spec a decade ago,and I was very impressed — it was the butt of jokes about design by government committee, but it looked pretty good to me...

I’m busy... It does feel like a blend of Haskell and C++, which is very appealing.

Better than C++* It won't ever be faster than C.

The built in everything-is-restrict should help to some degree, but a performance improvement is not the reason to reach for it.
