Microsoft: We're creating a new Rust-based programming language for secure coding

"https://www.zdnet.com/article/microsoft-were-creating-a-new-rust-based-programming-language-for-secure-coding/"

Microsoft's Project Verona involves creating a new language for "safe infrastructure programming" to be open-sourced soon.

Microsoft can't throw away old Windows code, but the company's research under Project Verona is aiming to make Windows 10 more secure with its recent work on integrating Mozilla-developed Rust for low-level Windows components.  

The company recently revealed that its trials with Rust over C and C++ to remove insecure code from Windows had hit its targets. But why did Microsoft do this? 

The company has partially explained its security-related motives for experimenting with Rust, but hasn't gone into much detail about the reasons for its move.
