After the whole Rust Trademark Dispute, which seemed to carry notable political overtones, I am simply not interested in a language that makes it difficult to describe what I'm working on without running afoul of violating the language trademarks or brand.
It seems the Rust foundation wants Rust to occupy more space in my head than I originally intended for it - which was, namely, to be a sane alternative to C.
It is worth noting that C has withstood the test of time for over 50 years. I suppose there's a reason for that.
It may be that the Rust foundation may back down from the proposed policy, but it's too late for me. The foundation was merely testing the waters, and I'm sure they'll return with even tighter restrictions next time.
