Windows and Rust

As reported by The Register, Microsoft is starting to rewrite core Windows libraries using the more memory-safe Rust programming language. The primary goal at the moment is to convert some of the internal C++ datatypes to their Rust equivalents.

Microsoft became interested in Rust a few years ago as a way to catch and eliminate memory security bugs before the code hits users.

The Rust language itself was designed by Graydon Hoare in 2006, and in 2009 the project was adopted by the Mozilla Foundation. On February 8, 2021, five companies (Mozilla, AWS, Google, Microsoft and Huawei) announced the creation of the Rust Foundation.
