Not sure who came up with that conclusion. Granted, you can solve many
problems surprinsingly well with plain C. But I consider Go as a
suckless option because of:

- The only OO-way almost done right
- statically linked binaries

The GC in Go is a consequence of its concurrency approach -- when you
solve problems with a high degree of concurrency, maintaining memory
properly can become a hard task. And Go adopted CSP quite seriously in
contrast to regular imperative languages that don't even provide
language constructs that come close.

I cannot confirm that suckless has ever been opposed to Go.
