Another Day, Another Language: Go: From Google

From LWN, I learnt that Google has released a new systems language because....nothing had been done in that area for some time.

So, we have Go.

After you've gone through the FAQs, which I strongly suggest you do, as it contains interesting pointers on the whys and whats of this language,  one has this nagging feeling ....

Exactly what issue are they addressing and for whom?  It's there in the FAQ but are YOU convinced?

Isn't it fairly clear that they are addressing their own issue of wanting to use Python for server-side programming, but are having problems with getting python to scale? Thus you get Unladen Swallow, and now Go.
