Don't get me wrong, I love Go and I think it does stand on its own, and while it has weaknesses, it also has clear advantages, in a neat simple little package.

Go is simple. The compilers are simple to deploy and cross compiler. The inheritance story is dead simple. They seem to be carefully planning out design before throwing in features willy nilly (Generics, Exceptions, etc.) .

I just think it'd be augmented by an IDE. Without one its still perfectly usable, these are just nit picks.
