Go is garbage that fills no actual extant computing niche. Nobody was looking for "like Python but with a crappy type system and a little bit faster". Go is neither high performance, nor real time, nor is it a systems programming language. It's an "also ran" scripting language.
In case you don't believe me, here you go: Google can't even get their own people to use it. They tried to mandate it for new projects in SRE and had a massive revolt on their hands.
