I think what excites me about things like #gemini is that it's simple enough I can wrap my head around it and a nice community around it. Gemini will probably never "take over the world", and I question if that's even desirable. It's just fun to play with and I like seeing what people can do with it.
For a while good ide support was the main missing tool but some time in the past 2 years rust-analyser has reall gotten there. And it's fast that other lsp servers I've used.
The longer I use it and the more I look at other langs the more I think #rust has the right of things. It upholds its core goals while being flexible and accommodating to as many use cases as possible. I really appreciate that it comes with first class tooling out of the box.
