Hey calm down, did I touched a nerve there?

I never mentioned IDEs except for the quote, I specifically said Without the help of a tool... already to avoid a 70's editor vs IDE discussion.

Use whatever you like.

I really doubt Go is usable in the context of multi-site off-shoring enterprise projects, which are the bread-and-butter for any Fortune 500 company nowadays.

If it succeeds in this world, it will be because of Google's sponsoring, nothing else.

Why do you doubt its usability? What aspects of Go are unsuitable? Do you mean that it's has different issues from other languages, maybe issues you're not as familiar with addressing? Please give details, as it's hard to actually hold a conversation, let alone a debate, when participants don't give anything to discuss.

I already did on previous posts:

- Lack of modern abstractions while compared with other mainstream languages;

- No proper way, without tools or compilation, to check what interfaces a given type supports.

I'm pretty sure I was agreeing with you.

Sorry, I interpreted as being a sarcastic reply.

That is the problem of communicating only via text, sorry.
