What negativity are you referring to? Most comments seem to be positive or something to the effect of "how do B+ and LSM compare for this use case?".

> For most of the languages out there, it is always better to have a native implemention.

I'm not sure that's true...imagine a K/V store written natively in Ruby, Python, JS... People have done what DGraph did before, in other languages -- writing log-structured databases in Haskell, &c -- but without a very large community you didn't get the level of improvement and testing that you see with something written in C and used across many languages. The JVM is an example of an environment where the "native" approach has worked out well; but is that "most of the languages"?
