(un)popular opinion: Yes, #Rust is great, but most applications are totally fine with a GC allocation model.
The langauge is optimized for more system-critical applications than most of its users are working in.
A literal fork of rust that introduces a good GC would kind of hit a sweet spot for a lot of applications.
Algebraic data types, typeclasses (aka traits), functional programming at the fingertips, strict evaluation.
Kind of an #OCAML #StandardML for the next decades.
@holger Rust + GC = ML, already exists.
