Agree with 3.

1 sounds like you need to get experience on more platforms though. Maybe try to work on a memory restricted platform using a GC language and see how it fucks you over. Anyway, look beyond the javascript "ecosystem".

And while 2 can be mildly annoying, there's a reason Borland compilers are so fast, and that's the somewhat restricted syntax of the language.

Don’t know what relevance the JavaScript ecosystem has. I would pick a language with a GC any day and then deal with issues later on, than to struggle every bit of the way without a GC IMO.
