At the moment the gccgo is slower than the 6g compiler, but according
to Rob the compiled code is better with gccgo

At the moment speed is 10-20% slower than pure C, but you get all the
features C lacks. I would say that is nice as coding should be faster
and you get more maintainable programs.

I really liked the concurrency approach; goroutines and channels from
the tech talk presentation. Have not seen them in "action" though.

Syntactically the language seems a bit confusing at first and
unfortunately too similar to C.
