OSNews, Generic OSes "A tiny 32 bit kernel written in Rust. I was inspired to download Rust and try to do this after seeing zero.rs - a stub that lets Rust programs run almost freestanding. It paints the screen bright red and then hangs. That's it."

Maybe if it was something to be excited about. In any way. At all.
It paints the screen red and stops. Wow. Stop the presses, we got a scoop.

It is, it is another baby step to show the geek community another OS done in safe systems programming languages.

When it does something more useful than painting the screen red I'll agree that it's exciting. Until then it's really not and I don't see why it would warrant a news item.

another OS done in safe systems programming languages.

The irony being that two of the three functions in main.rs are marked unsafe.
