I think what I should have said is that, since I had deadlines for project submissions, dealing with Rust in its current state was more difficult than writing it in Python would have been.

I do understand that Rust is trying to become a better alternative to current lower-level languages, but my OS class is (supposed) to be about how things like kernels and schedulers work, not about college students struggling with a new under development language. So by "rather just write it in Python" I meant "rather just write it in something I already can use efficiently." I am obviously not who Rust is aimed at.

You can't write an OS in Python.
