Laurence,

"I appreciate what you're saying, but these days frameworks are as integral part of the language as the language itself. eg what would be the point of C# if it wasn't for .NET? Or Java if it wasn't for JRE? Or even Python if it wasn't for it's modules?"

True, Go is young and has a beautiful framework now, but what about in a few years? After "getting around" and putting on a few pounds, she might start to look like grandma Perl ;)

Exaggerated a tad for comedic effect. The following link makes me laugh and cry simultaneously...
