The effort to avoid C++ in some domains is very high, for example 
on Windows, it seems every effort from DevDiv to improve the 
overall experience gets botched by WinDev pushing their C++ 

Now it remains to be seen what uphill battles the newly created 
Microsoft Rust team will need to face as well.

This is just one example among many, either one is prepared to be 
the snowflake that does everything alone, and spends development 
money getting stuff to work, or just integrate the existing 
ecosystem and proceed to spend customer's money on actual product 

I cannot bill hours on "working around existing C++ SDK, because 
there is better out there".
