Late to the party, but I agree with a lot (not all details, of course) of what you're saying, with one big exeption: The downvote on memory management for Rust.

A real system language can't afford to use a garbage collector. I think Rust found a good balance between safety and manual memery management (but take that with a grain of salt, I'm only at the beginner's stage)

I think Rust will have a nice future now that AWS, Huawei, Google, Microsoft have joined Mozilla in the Rust Foundation.
