This is pretty cool. Now there's at least one viable alternative phone I can buy if my current one reaches its end-of-life. I'm still holding out hope for the #PinePhone and other #nix based smartphones. Getting a convergent Linux onto smartphones that can serve as a daily driver would be killer. But until then it's great that there's a choice that isn't a giant Silicon Valley silo.

The Rust Foundation is an independent non-profit organization to steward the Rust programming language and ecosystem, with a unique focus on supporting the set of maintainers that govern and develop the project.

Congrats to the Rust team and Mozilla for this milestone! I wonder if Mozilla could further its mission better by being an incubator instead of trying to develop its own products. They could develop technologies and build them into sustainable foundations. I trust Mozilla to think about the right things when starting a new technology, but I'm not so sure about their expertise to develop end-user products.
