Re: Don't believe that C# is issue free

Also C# and Rust are not really comparable; C# has a garbage collector, Rust doesn't.

Because Rust's syntax has such a thorough grip on memory ownership and mutability, there's never any need to explicitly clean anything up. The compiler can work out for sure when memory has gone out of scope.
