I am not yet ready to switch to Zig from Rust

The author has a deep affection for programming in C, especially due to their experience with the Linux kernel, but acknowledges the language’s flaws in safety and complexity. They found Rust appealing for its memory safety, despite initial struggles with the borrow checker. Zig seemed promising for its resemblance to C, but issues with tooling, memor.cycle management, learning resources, ecosystem, and industry support led the author to stick with Rust as their preferred language for systems programming. While the author remains hopeful for Zig’s future, they currently find Rust to be the more reliable choice.
