i read through the rust by example book a bit today. as a language i actually kind-of like rust. i still don't like the community (abandoning portable c libraries and rewriting in not-portable rust is shitty), the cargo build system is the worst (and it's mandatory, no way to use another build system easily), crates is worse than npm in terms of horrific and stupid dependencies, and there is no spec and the compiler is so complex that it'd be impossible to write your own, but the language itself is okay.
