>Rust sounds great, but after a day of playing with it I saw it's really not ready yet.

Well, they never said it was ready. Actually they say the exact opposite: that it's still a moving target. It's 0.5 for a reason. Hopefully around this time next year there will be a 1.0.

I didn't want to imply otherwise, but languages have different paths to "ready". Some are stuck in 0.999 for ages, some are actually usable after 2.4 (python), some are quite stable without any specific number (ooc), etc. It's worth checking out your options early.
