    The makers of systems programming language Rust are looking at how to adapt the language for use in the Linux kernel. 

    Josh Triplett, an Intel engineer and lead of the Rust language project, says he'd "love to see a path to incorporating Rust into the kernel", as long as it's done cautiously and doesn't upset Linux kernel creator Linus Torvalds.
