@hund In my opinion this was inevitable, but I don't think there are enough Rust programmers at the moment to have a big enough impact on the Kernel.
By the time it does, hopefully there would be faster Rust compilers and more target architectures. Or maybe, it will not see any adoption and will be removed again.
For me, I'm already dependent on Rust through ripgrep, fd and other tools.
