I should say before I comment further that I'm not a fan of Rust as such but it does look like it has a future to me.

Given that Firefox is also Mozilla's I wouldn't count that overly heavily in Rust's favor as being in real use. They'd probably look the other way far more than another company would in terms of issues and such.


Other way round, surely. I.e. If there's a problem then they can and will fix it.

Additionally, Firefox is a heavyweight code base and is surely as real as it gets.

Not yet looked at Go or D, since I just have had the impression that there wouldn't maybe be much of a career path improvement in those directions, though I could be wrong on that. Given my interest in large scale frameworks and such I'd definitely want something that has the same breadth as C++, or close thereto. I'm not sure Go fits that description?


With Go being backed by Google I think it might well have a massive future.

Sadly D's future does seem more questionable. I think it has suffered due to not having big time corporate backing like MS, Google, Apple or even Mozilla (in this context at least).

I don't claim to be a Go expert but it certainly does seem, as I understand it, to be intended to have the "same breadth as C++" but of course it could depend on what that means in practice for you.
