Discussion on: Why GoLang wasn't accepted by communities ?

Not accepted by what communities? These two languages and their ecosystems target different areas, to a large extent.

It may be better to discuss specific areas because there will be different priorities depending on what you work on. At the end of the day it is about getting the job done - and be able to maintain it moving forward.

The language itself is one piece of the puzzle only, the ecosystem around the language may be more important.

Since Python has been used for all sorts of things, there may certainly be areas where Go may be a viable alternative. But in a number of areas, I would probably rather consider languages such as Julia, F# and Elixir as alternatives to Python.
