My stance on Rust ranges from slightly skeptical to neutral -- slightly skeptical because I remember all the grand promises of memory-safe Java in the '90s, and neutral because I honestly don't know enough about Rust internals to assess its claims.
You all realize that the only way Rust goes away is not from a mass tranny suicide but from a critical blow to its technical claims, right? Critical papers have slowly started emerging, but I don't think there's been some kind of devastating blow yet. These things do take time. Reminds me of what happened with Java when academics finally began dissecting JVM bytecode verifiers.
You do begin each day reading the latest in Rust research so you can pounce when the time is right... right, anon?
