go is quite worse than rust. go has mandatory garbage collection, and its
bootstrap compiler is gcc (now c++ mandatory), no effort on a "working kernel"
as far as I know (at least they are trying with rust). rust has in-syntax
string management, why not in-syntax thread management while they are it. Their
bootstrap SDK is a pile of insane junk (mozilla based, then expected).

Well, I'm waiting to get a working basic kernel coded with go. I think they did
try with ada. Good luck for the GPU drivers.

For the reasons I gave, those "interpreted" languages should be avoided like
hell, they are sneaky and really bad, and avoiding the "war" between all
interpreted languages is already so much added value that it is worth it. The
only sane way is a set of simple SH scripts orchestrating a set of C coded
programs: YES, I will take a bit more time to code, YES, I will compile, but OH
GOD! I'M WON'T FUCKING DEPEND ON THOSE... (insert pejorative anything here, it
will do).
