    which is at most half-truth cause this is just official installers and most likely you'll use some sort of rustup (which wasn't official few years ago) you can use you can use community packages etc.

    "and so on is that languages other that swift aim to support linux in general." -> again not true linux distro dosen't change swift usage it is just official build is run for few most popular distros and you can use prebuild swift-bin on any linux repo. (arch, debina, ubuntu, centos etc. etc.) You can say the same stuff about rust/nim/go every other language that didn't have official release for some niche linux distro.

    One disadvantage of Swift is how Apple decided to deploy new versions. They only come bundled with new versions of their operating systems. However, with swiftenv (kylef/swiftenv) other versions than the bundled one can be installed. So maybe that adds a possibility to run more modern swift versions on older hardware?
