Too early to tell, given that at this point it is still very much an experiment.
We’ve already made it to carbon? Did I miss the “why don’t we rewrite nix in (go|rust|haskell|brainfuck) as that will ensure world domination” conversation?
Why carbon though? Any specific reason?
I think the idea is that you don’t need to rewrite
c++ code is intended to be compatible with
carbon so you can benefit going forward. I believe I recall a
carbon converter as well…
I don’t think this post was meant seriously though. Every time Google announces a new project you have to wait a number of years to see if it will end up as the next big thing, or far more likely, another project Google abandons. If
