  1. How can you honestly say that Elixir has a lower learning curve than Go?
    Also, how is a Hello World a useful benchmark in any way? Those numbers mean nothing. What would’ve been useful is a highly concurrent use case where elixirs processes could be compared to Goroutines and whatever Rust has.

  2. Strange Comparing Elixir with Rust and Go. Yep. Go and Rust faster than Elixir. Yep. Size of application on Rust and Go is smaller than Elixir. But Elixir provide REPL for production application. Go and Rust? Nope. And you can debug and recompile modules with this REPL on fly in production. Go and Rust? I think more correct comparing is with Ruby and Python.

  3. Have you heard of the Enduro/X Middleware, which gives C/C++/Java/Go and Python the same properties as the Elixir? Middleware allows the configure and start the language agnostic binaries in several copies (even in hundreds of them), load balances the calls between them, uses message passing interface for the calls, provides fault tolerance and scaling to the multi-machine cluster. The function/service call between two binaries running typically takes about 12 microseconds. For all of the supported languages middleware provides common API for service call data parameter/buffer handling. At the core of the middleware, Unix in-memory kernel queues are utilized.

  4. This article repeatedly refers to the fact that Go and Rust are compiled languages, and as such offer certain advantages over Elixir.

    This is completely misleading. Elixir is also a compiled language.
