I like Go's simplicity and somehow I am attracted to it due to the some of 
its Oberon influences.

Now, everyone with a proper computer science background will immediatly see 
that all the
features that are sold as Go unique features, are already available for long 
time in other languages,
only not in C or to a certain extent C++.

Go might eventually become a nice C sucessor, but it will never be able to 
replace C++, Java, D,
or any other current languages that offer much better programming
