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")
They appeal to programmer that prefers fashionable technology
rather than technologies that solve problems.
