c was not perfect
but probably it's still the simplest language to program a ram machine

go is safe and nice: the common mistakes of c programs can be avoided
in exchange it gives less control to the programmer (does not have the
simple mental model of pointer arithmetic or c strings nor macros) and
sacrifices some efficiency to have a few higher level language
features (gc, interface, string, map, package, init, defer, closure..)
as a bonus it has multi tasking support (go, chan, select), good
library support and stricter semantics
