Some experts say that Go's syntax is friendly and easy like Python or Ruby on Rails while remaining familiar enough to those who know C-based languages.

It's open source too.

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.

From reading the specs, it is some sort of low level language that is supposed to be easier to use.
I have no idea what it is useful for.

Not to tout python. But with python there is cython.
cython is a variant of python, which compiles to "C".
So you can play with pointers and all those other cool things. On the other hand u have python's memory management behind you and all of python's libaries.

OCAML is a cool language.
Speed of "C"  safety of python,ruby,php etc.
Except for science community it will never get off the ground.
Biggest thing is lack of libraries.

gnome released http://live.gnome.org/Vala and http://live.gnome.org/Genie both same idea.
they are kind of cool, but i have no idea why u would want to use them Smiley

It's yet again one of those Google "innovations" that's going to be in beta stage forever.
