Jim Salter, for Ars Technica, on Rust being considered for some utilities and drivers in the Linux kernel:

"""
The great thing about C is that it's not assembly language.

[…] the Rust port might replace the original GNU Coreutils in some environments—offering thread safety and immunity to memory management errors. […] Torvalds goes on to describe device drivers as obvious low-hanging fruit for potential new work to be done in Rust.
