Google "Native Client enables Chrome to run high-performance apps compiled from your C and C++ code. One of the main goals of Native Client is to be architecture-independent, so that all machines can run NaCl content. Today we're taking another step toward that goal: our Native Client SDK now supports ARM devices, from version 25 and onwards."

To be honest, that doesn't even look valid Go (though, as I said, I'm only a week in on the language).

However some of the weirder syntax I've read on the tutorials were purely demonstrations showing how the more advanced C++ routines would be ported (so not really your typical day to day functions).

But lets be honest, you can find extreme cases of bad code in any language, so if you're genuinely curious about the language then I'd recommend have a quick browse through the tour: http://tour.golang.org/

It is a valid Go code, I took it from one of golang.org examples, my point is, just like in C++, it can become unreadable with not much effort.

But that's the case for all languages. Keeping any sufficiently complicated language tidy takes effort.

Quite honestly, I think it's silly making comments like these when you've not even written one line of code. If nothing else, it smacks of prejudice. So how about you actually give the language a try before passing judgement? Or STFU and let people who have used the language comment.
