I think my personal preferences are actually important as they are pretty basic criticisms. Which the article basically addresses with "haters will be haters".

While you might be able to write code without an IDE.

I wonder how writing a project would work with Go, with the accessibility modifiers down to the naming convention. While I like naming conventions I do think code should be blindingly obvious to read.

I find it difficult enough (I don't have TFS access to force naming convention conformance ... yet) to get 4 devs to use the same naming conventions.

Maybe Go isn't meant for this, but then I wonder who its target audience is then?
