Microsoft began experimenting with Rust in the summer of 2019. It was reported that the company is going to rewrite some of its products using this programming language. In early November 2019, Adam Burch, a programmer on the Hyper-V development team (hardware virtualization systems for x64 systems based on a hypervisor), wrote on a corporate blog that he was instructed to rewrite a certain low-level Windows component in Rust which he has yet to name. According to him, despite the incompleteness of the project, the experience with Rust was generally positive. He also noted that the code base of new components and existing ones, but with “clean interfaces”, will not be difficult to transfer to Rust. In addition, Burch lamented the lack of some features in the language compared to his familiar C, but expressed confidence that Microsoft could contribute to adding them. A few words about Rust Rust appeared in 2006 as a personal project of Graydon Hoare, a Mozilla employee. In 2009, Mozilla began sponsoring the development of Rust for its own needs, and also expanded the team to further develop the language. Mozilla's interest in Rust was fueled by a huge number of critical vulnerabilities in the company's Firefox browser, which was implemented with over 4 million lines of C++. Rust was built with security and concurrency in mind, making it the right choice for rewriting many Firefox components as part of Quantum's project to completely overhaul the browser's architecture. In addition, Mozilla used Rust to develop Servo, an HTML rendering engine that was supposed to replace Firefox's current rendering engine. In addition to Mozilla and Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Dropbox, Fastly, Baidu use their Rust projects. In August 2019, at the Open Source Technology Summit, Josh Triplett, Lead Engineer at Intel, spoke about his company's interest in seeing Rust achieve "parity" in the near future. with C as the dominant system and low-level development language. In the same month, Greg Kroah-Hartman, one of the key developers of the Linux kernel, said that he would not interfere with the inclusion of a framework for writing drivers in Rust in the core .
