Google’s Android Team is backing an effort to introduce Rust as a second programming language in the Linux kernel.

With no GCC rust implementation and without a standard, LLVM is going to be present in Linux as a dependency for unnecessary reasons.

That’s a concern, though its funny how developers bring their rules to the project and companies.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
