Those poor windows users can't be expected to read! I say we should lock out everyone from uninstalling a DE ever! Even if he confirms that he wishes to do so.

Why shouldn't I use Rust?

No.84547674 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
I want a highly performant language, with strong typing and without the memory management problems present in C/C++.

Is there a good reason not to use Rust? Ada is another nice option, but the focus with Ada is more on provable correctness rather than memory safety. Furthermore, is Rust suitable for embedded development with microcontrollers?
