I suspect there are a lot of "Rust devs" that are little more than kool-aid drinkers. Common refrains are that Rust is the fastest language, most type-safe language, and most powerful language. Rust certainly seems to move the state of the art forward in some ways, but you can still write garbage code in it.

I've worked with lots of different people in lots of different languages, and I think I'd rather good people in a bad language than the other way around by a mile.

You can write garbage code in rust, but the compiler will beat you with a stick for doing so.

Pfft, that's only because you write garbage code in rust.

I write garbage code in lots of languages!
