What lisps are there for "systems programming" where the system being programmed doesn't have a tagged architecture?
I guess one could say "a whole bunch of compiler intermediate languages" but I'm not sure that counts
My probably hypersnark there was being unimpressed with seeing blogposts where people say, "Wow, I spent five days being beat up by Rust's compiler... now I feel really accomplished!"
@craigmaloney @cwebber @technomancy @starbreaker With all the cool C++14 features I imagine these days it's driven more by a desire to repurpose the brain real estate taken up by all of C++'s dark cobwebby/sharp corners to some more useful purpose. Oh and garbage collection, since one hits the limits of unique pointers rather quickly, and shared pointers are... pointy.
