Great to see a modern language with native support. Performance reduction by VMs such as JVM and .NET runtime are a waste. Even GC (mem leaks) can be handled at compile time with today’s compiler’s/IDEs. So, just wanted to say that the Kotlin native initiative should be huge and is critically important. Who ever said that WORA requires performance reductions? This is just something we’re accepted blindly. Kotlin language itself is revolutionary - that’s one half of it - the other half is leveraging modern compiler/IDE technologies to put the memory management back into design/compile time and have a productive language with performance of C/C++ (or at least close to it). The time has come!
