R vs Rust: What are the differences?
R: A language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. R provides a wide variety of statistical (linear and nonlinear modelling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, ...) and graphical techniques, and is highly extensible; Rust: A safe, concurrent, practical language. Rust is a systems programming language that combines strong compile-time correctness guarantees with fast performance. It improves upon the ideas of other systems languages like C++ by providing guaranteed memory safety (no crashes, no data races) and complete control over the lifecycle of memory.
R and Rust can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.
"Data analysis " is the primary reason why developers consider R over the competitors, whereas "Guaranteed memory safety" was stated as the key factor in picking Rust.
Rust is an open source tool with 37.3K GitHub stars and 5.85K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Rust's open source repository on GitHub.
AdRoll, Instacart, and Verba are some of the popular companies that use R, whereas Rust is used by Dropbox, Sentry, and Roundscope Ukraine Labs. R has a broader approval, being mentioned in 128 company stacks & 97 developers stacks; compared to Rust, which is listed in 39 company stacks and 105 developer stacks.

What are my other choices for a vectorized statistics language. Professor was pushing SAS Jump (or was that SPSS) with a menu-driven point and click approach. (Reproducibility can still be accomplished, you publish the script generated by all your clicks.) But I want to type everything, great online tutorials for R. I think I made the right pick.
Rust is used in Shirogane (https://github.com/Marc3842h/shirogane).
Shirogane is a osu! beatmap mirror built for shiro. We use Rust because of memory safe but still low level and high performance.
Connect to database, data analytics, draw diagram. Machine Learning application, and also used Spark-R for big data processing.
