General Development "For years I've tried my damnedest to get away from C. Too simple, too many details to manage, too old and crufty, too low level. I've had intense and torrid love affairs with Java, C++, and Erlang. I've built things I'm proud of with all of them, and yet each has broken my heart. They've made promises they couldn't keep, created cultures that focus on the wrong things, and made devastating tradeoffs that eventually make you suffer painfully. And I keep crawling back to C."

In the meantime you can always grab a snapshot of Go tip. A couple of the go core devs I talked to feel that for performance intensive uses this is the way to go. You can use the google issue tracker to make sure you don't care about any issues in a particular snapshot (many are feature enchantments, etc)

Probably give it a shot again, last time I tried it (pre 1.03) there were some problems with some cgo bindings I used.

Still it's not as if I can't wait for the 1.1 release, as I said I'm not doing any production code in Go so performance isn't really an issue. Just trying to grok the language on my spare time, sofar so good ;)
