Okay, I did. Very interesting. I briefly studied Ada many years ago. Do you think that Ada is a viable alternative to Rust? Do you think it is a decent alternative to C for things like operating systems or utilities like sbase or ubase?

I made a Hello World program in Ada. Very fast and small. However, it depends on libgnat-8.so.1. Is there a way to build it so that it does not? Like statically linked?
