Yeah I like Rust as well. Probably for the same reason you mentioned. Lately (last year or two), I think they have been moving to be closer to C++ than to Erlang.

Nothing wrong with it just an observation. Say they shed their runtime system. libgreen got moved to a separate package. Instead of relying and encouraging creating mutliple tasks and have them fail!( well panic!) now they are moving to have error traits as return values.

Again nothing wrong with it. I think it is a good move. Just observing how it started off at one side and moved towards the other.

I think it calls for a Rust-Erlang interop.library just like there is a Java one. I would like to be able to have a Rust node. Or say create NIFs in Rust perhaps.
