Also worth pointing out that Fuchsia's kernel is an, ehem, "microkernel", in only the strictest sense of the word... so that number doesn't even include any drivers
@sir You can turn that back into hating Rust, as Fuschia(the OS) has more Rust code than C++
@ignaloidas oh nice, so that number is more like a half a million lines of code. Should take weeks to compile at that rate
@sir actually, according to https://lobste.rs/s/nswrsv/introduction_memory_unsafety_for_vps#c_5fa8hp it's over a million
@ignaloidas lovely, just lovely
@sir you're my favourite bitter old man
@a1batross why anyone admires the engineering culture at Google is beyond me
@sir Is MINIX spying on you?
@waweic minix is famously used by intel management engine
@sir Ah, ok
Google created Fuchsia instead of modifying Minix because they are C++ fans?
@sir Huawei's HarmonyOS uses a microkernel too
@alexl and it's also probably spying on you \o/
