As the old saying goes, "There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies."

Rust is a crutch which is enabling the proliferation of awful software from the latter camp under the guise of a moral imperative for "more secure" software

@sir If you are out for simple design why dont you write your software in Ziglang?


@nifker I don't agree that zig is simple, or encourages the use of simple design practices

@nifker I think comptime is a bad idea, among other things
