Default Redox os

I am no programmer. But I liked what I saw when reading about Redox os.

It is very unix like in philosophy, many small programs with each own little task.
It has a micro kernel.
It will be written in RUST for hopefully better security if written in same quality as in c.
Long term goal of being proven like sel4.

It boots, and enter graphical desktop. All this accomplished in only a few years.
1 Full time dev.

https://github.com/redox-os

Rust is over my head, but it seems to have some support :

So please consider rust for you next program! I dream of a redox os desktop with good app support!

The last time I looked at redox, it was a "hello world" type of operating system. Maybe it has progressed a lot, since it's been quite a while ...

Interesting survey/poll you posted from stackexchange. Well, I don't use any of the top seven most loved programming languages. I guess I'm obsolete LOL.

I'm not entirely sold on Rust; I should probably learn it "properly" one day, but in many ways it seems like "the new C++", with many of the problems too (specifically, it seems pretty easy to write pretty unreadable code).

I personally rather like Go, which is more like a "modern C" in many ways (although there are also other differences, such as garbage collection).

Looking at that programming language list, swift and node.js aren't even languages they are JavaScript libraries, I just hate that people consider them languages and once they aren't "cool" anymore they are dead weights. We replaced all our jQuery with are own home grown JS libraries, much easier to maintain and don't have to worry about the cool effect.

I was looking at Go last week and I like it also...just need something to do with it.

Swift is most definitely a language...

Sorry...I meant React, early morning reading.

The question was about which *technology* you like/dislike, so nodejs or React are okay choices for that.

This is often a problem for my pet projects: on one hand I'd like to learn something new, but on the other hand I want to just get on with it and make something useful reasonably fast without getting bogged down in a new language.

I find that the older I get, the less patience I have for playing or mucking about with various technologies "for the fun of it". Life's too short, and after you've learned a handful of languages (or "technologies" in general) there are diminishing returns.

That's why I find I do everything in C. When I start piddling with other languages, I hear a voice in the back of my head saying, "Well, this is just like C", and I question why I'm bothering with a new language.

Yes, I know some of these new things take care of stuff I have to do manually now but I wrote those manual things decades ago and still use them. I don't have to use new features of new languages.

I kind of like Rust but I just don't know. I kind of like Go but would get stuck sometimes. I despise using nodejs but have to cause credit card stuff for some web sites we develop.
