(un)popular opinion: Yes, #Rust is great, but most applications are totally fine with a GC allocation model.

The langauge is optimized for more system-critical applications than most of its users are working in.

A literal fork of rust that introduces a good GC would kind of hit a sweet spot for a lot of applications.

Algebraic data types, typeclasses (aka traits), functional programming at the fingertips, strict evaluation.

Kind of an #OCAML #StandardML for the next decades.



@holger Rust has solved the memory management in such an elegant way that I don't understand what you would gain from introducing a garbage collector.
