Chris Dickinson, Engineer at npm, Inc from Rust web site

My biggest compliment to Rust is that it's boring, and this is an amazing compliment.

I'm probably missing his meaning, and he probably means something good, but being boring isn't something that I want from a language.
I think of COBOL when you say a language is boring and I want nothing to do with COBOL.
As a Dev as soon as MEGO (My Eyes Glaze Over) sets in (because of complexity or esoteria), I am done with a language.
