In the development section of the site, there s a Go and C subcategory. Obviously, this category is for general purpose, structured programming languages, and given Go's recent appearance on the development horizon, I am curious as to why Rust isn't listed.

Personally, I have little preference (scripting and markup is my forté anyway!), so I was hoping someone a bit more experienced in structured programming development could explain to me why the forum decided not to include Rust in the category title. Is there a lack of support? Not enough community members involved in Rust development?

At the moment the development section of the forums isn't the most active one.
There's no need to add new sections. If you have something interesting to post which is related to Unix then do it in another section and we'll move the threads later.

I think they just don't want to include every programming language that serves the same purpose as C/C++/Go. You could also ask "Why not D". I don't think the mods have anyhing against Rust :P
Edit: too late :P

Cool. Just wondering if there was a more purposeful reason behind the decision :)

As an avid Rust user and a contributor to rust-lang, I would welcome replacing the non-systems language Go with Rust.

maybe there is juat not enough rust users to have a dedicated section

Seeing as Go, C and C++ are together, why not just rename the category to add Rust? They basically have the same purpose anyway

A better idea would be to give a more general name such as "Systems Languages" and then put "C, C++, Rust, etc" in parentheses.

I think that's the best way to go, too.
