Comment Logitech G710+ (Score 1) 452 452

I've got this gamer keyboard although I'm no gamer, and I like it pretty much. It's mechanical (Cherry MX) but noiseless (rubber O-rings), backlit, with multimedia keys. The only drawback is the strange inverted decoration on some keys, but as I don't look to much at my fingers when typing it's OK for me.

Doesn't Rust use refounts?

By default no, everything is stack allocated (which is of course way faster). But you can also easily use so-called boxed types which are heap-allocated, with various ownership modes. FWIW I'm really sold to Rust's concepts, but a bit less on the implementation: effectively as soon as you do half-complex things your implementation becomes not that readable, and not that easy to code. Maybe it's because I need more experience, I still don't know.
