rust is the anti tcl

Posted at — Nov 8, 2019

I was feeling pretty good about wanting to try rust-lang. Then I checked the size…That compiler is 232MB in size. Sure you get a lot for the size but really? Umpteen years ago we talked about “it’s going to be a hardware problem”… and it is. Sure there always some edge cases that benefit from fancy languages but at the end of the day this is all just crap. We just need to get work done.
