Hurd development started in 1990, redox started in 2015. If they are
both at the same state of development (don't know, didn't test any of
them), should a direct deduction be that rust is better than C to write
OSes? (now I'm actually trolling, you dragged me down this path)

The fact remains: rust has had approx. 1/26 times the time hurd, and
1/25 times the time linux had to develop. Do you think it's fair to
already consider it's an epic fail?
