go has pretty good adoption for what it is. It is great for building tools and architecture services. logging services, databases, proxies,... but for building applications, with lots of abstractions, I still prefer more dynamic languages. the gocode is very much deluted with if err != nil ... after almost every second function call. and error messages and stack traces are pretty much a mess.

However the cross platform compiling is awesome. and i hope it can gain more ground from the java and C land.
