I have meet the main coyotos dev, and he is a very nice and smart
person, but coyotos is 100% academic ivory tower work, Go is 100%
practical stuff to get real work done.

In all the years coyotos has been out, I don't think anyone has really
used it for anything, Go already runs and has quite
a bit of useful software (and more is being written every day).
