    Rust is less productive in the initial development phase than other languages ... part is also that sometimes tweaking the code around the borrow checker just takes some effort, or that very strict types do get in the way

    If you think of this struggle as fixing double-frees, dangling pointers and other common errors before they ever make it to production then it's time well spent. I'm sure the author would agree, but they present this as a downside. IMO it's indisputably an upside if the code is running in a production environment.
