Hey guys and girls,

Polling for opinions here. I watched the Rust video from PyCon about a week
ago. I work with a handful of people who commonly attend (and some speak)
at PyCon. I also work with people who are big "Go" people.

This was really the first time I've come across Rust. It had some cool
things going for it. I was also surprised to see it backed by Mozilla.

What's the benefits of using Rust over Go? I feel like they were both sort
of created to solve the same problem. I'm not intending this to be a flame
war -- I am just genuinely curious how/why Rust is taking off so
