Why?

@sovietsnake Rust is a member of the ML dynasty because its foundations, e.g., let, match, if-expression (not a statement), are the same as OCaml.

How many programming languages do you want to release?

Google: ‘Yes.’

Isn’t that supposed to be Go’s job?

Is Go compatible with C++?

Not seamlessly. That’s pretty much impossible given the complexity of C++. Go does interoperate with C via cgo, which can be made to produce something like C++ compatibility.

hmm I thought Go was written as a “better C”

edit: checked my facts and indeed its designers made it because of their dislike for C++

Yep. Google is trying to recuperate C++, as I thought in the past.

Interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing how it performs in the real world against programming languages like Rust.

Another language that will be useless for ages, until different project will use it, just like dart and flutter, but this time it will be carbon and fushia, IG.

Doesn’t impress me much, but then again I’m not a C++ programmer – more like ANTI-C++!

Not pure functional, pff
