"Speaking at the BlueHat security conference in Israel last week, Microsoft security engineer Matt Miller said that over the last 12 years, around 70 percent of all Microsoft patches were fixes for memory safety bugs." Link Link2

"Rust is designed to be memory safe" Link Link2

"Rust is now an official language for Linux development.🎉
C and C++ have lead to lots of memory safety ssues over the years. Rust can prevent these. A lot of new Linux code will be in Rust." Link

I'm just trying to learn Rust as a hobby to play with IoT devices like the ESP32 but if the language is good enough for the linux kernel then it is good enough for me too :)
