Discussion on: Mozilla's layoffs are bad news for developers

I'm extremely disappointed, and I've been trying to keep a level head. It's been hard to not have knee-jerk reaction and jump ship because some the teams doing the coolest stuff are among the ones let go (Servo team is apparently gone). I'm feeling pretty cautious about Mozilla right now, and hope that they made a good choice. I hope they can right the ship and keep it floating.

I do wonder if/how this will affect rusts development as well. I did see a tweet bringing up that this could start a discussion on how the language is sponsored and might lead to Mozilla not being the "main" sponsor behind rust (at least in the long run), but that might be another discussion post.
