Discussion on: Why there seem to be less opportunities in Rust (right now) ?

I don't think Go is a good comparison since it has a much larger company backing it. I would attribute most of its momentum to the marketing it has had from the beginning.

Kotlin is a bit closer, but it relies on the existing ecosystem (Java) more than Rust to make adoption easier. Rust can call C/C++ but you normally want to write a wrapper, versus with Kotlin you can more or less just import the Java library.
