Personally, I'm not sure that much is gained in pitting Go
precisely because they're so different that they're likely to
completely different sets of people.
I also do not regard Go as a competitor to D. It's more of a
competitor to Java and Ruby.
How is Go a competitor to Ruby? I cannot think of a single
parameter where Go and Ruby don't take the exact opposite
approach!(other than the obvious ones like "both use require
the programmer to write code")
I think it's more of a competitor to Rails. Ruby as a language is
as you say very different from Go. Incidentally, it shows that it
is possible to make a language simple without crippling it.
