#Rust for #Linux:

This is:

1. Terrific! Memory-safe kernel code, woohoo!
2. Terrible! Unbootstrappable, memory-unsafe code still around, monolithic kernel weaknesses still here.

System Crafters made a nice video introduction to #GNU #Guix: (51 mn)

I just watched a talk by a kiddo, Alice M., "Here's how you can get all your day-to-day computing done with free software". Nice 👍

I hope kids join the GNU Guix soon.

Whoo, it's pretty rough around the edges, but this is probably the first Build Coordinator agent build on the GNU Hurd!

I attended most of the talks in the “Declarative” #FOSDEM track today and I enjoyed them all!

It’s been truly inspiring all along, and perhaps one of the best programs this devroom has had over the last few years. Thank you, fantastic hackers!

The talk ended up looking like a demo of new features I worked on as I was preparing it.

One of the things I showed is the #GNU #Guix System Explorer, a new tool to visualize and query system components and their connections:
