No. I don't really "get" go. It's not a systems language so comparing
it to C++ or C makes no sense. It has no generics so library authors

Haskell, Node, C#, Scala, and more.

Rust is infinitely more promising to me but there's still a good deal
of work to do there. The upside of Rust compared to Go is objectively
much higher.

One look at Go's date library says enough for me.
