From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).
Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.

Could someone explain what this means?
Here is the explanation: https://lwn.net/Articles/908347/
I imagine it means that all the libraries one would need to develop kernel modules have not been ported to Rust yet. Meaning you could theoretically write a module in Rust, but not really, since you can’t interact with any of the other code
I am no expert by any means, but rust cant compile to all of the architectures that linux supports, so it can only be used for drivers. I am looking for an explanation myself.
