As mentioned, Azure IoT and VSCode are already shipping with Rust 

If you do any kind of regular expression search on VSCode, that 
is powered by ripgrep.

Likewise if you deploy any Azure IoT device into the wild, the 
layer that talks between the hardware and .NET layer is powered 
by Rust, and the cloud part is powered by Actix.

More significantly, Kenny Kerr, which started the project to 
create a UWP projection in standard C++ instead of C++/CX, then 
joined Microsoft and ended up leading the effort to C++/WinRT, 
now the oficial replacement for C++/CX, has started a similar 
project for Rust.

So yes, this looks like the beginning of something.
