Thanks for the link. I don't understand what they mean in
saying I don't get Rust's vision.
A lot of Rust users seem to think they own the memory safe
market. Language with GC = Bad. What they forget is that a good
GC can be unnoticeable in code execution.
Take these silly benchmarks:
Despite Rust not being a GC language, you expect the Rust results
to have a lower memory usage then D. Or D to have a larger
execution time for the lower memory ( early GC cleanup cycles =
lower memory usage but performance hits ).
The D Ldc vs Rust are the most relevant as its the same backend.
But even with DMD or GCC those cpu/mem results can be better then
Rust. Even Crystal pushes better results on the same backend.
But i was under the assumption that anything that is not Rust is
simply bad? /s
