Go is the only hope for the future of the software industry, the only
weapon with a chance of killing the abominable mutant monster of C++
and the double-headed zombie of Java/C#.

I'm quite picky, and I have yet to see anything I don't like in Go,
the people that have designed it were some of the very few that truly
understood the spirit of C, and have spent *forty years* thinking
about how to perfect it and getting experience building a few
replacements (Alef, Limbo, ...), and it shows.

Having Go, there is no excuse to write user space code in C ever
again; as for kernel space, we will see (specially once they deploy
the new concurrent garbage collector), rob said he would like somebody
to try building a kernel in Go, this would be fun, and might even
produce something quite useful.

Enjoy, and if you care about the sanity of the software industry,
learn to love Go.
