Apple: Trust us, we've patented parts of Swift, and thus chunks of other programming languages, for your own good

Re: Is it an attack on Rust?

I also read it as attacking Rust, and any other object orientated language derived from or with similar syntax to C. It's a huge software landgrab and Apple have lawyers with the GDP of small countries at their disposal to throw a spanner in the works of other languages or organisations for years.

(But if it were Java/Oracle I'd have a hard time picking a side to support.)
