It's not that performance itself is not good enough, but rather developers look at other factors besides performance when evaluating languages, like:

  • language stability
  • ecosystem maturity
  • dev tooling availability
  • does the language fit the problem use-case/requirements?
  • are the trade-offs worth the effort / cost to develop, build, maintain services in this new language?
  • ...etc

Well, can't think of a language more stable than one supported by Google and the cncf with compatibility guaranteed with no breaking changes across major versions.
Also comes with built-in tooling.
Language fit use cases? I have no idea what that means, unless there is a requirement to use c#
