I think it's already fairly popular.

So is Go.

Portable binary is totally overrated and unnecessary ***. I use windows 7,
i program my Go server and test it on Windows, when i need to deploy it to
Linux, i simply type "*set GOOS=linux *, *go build"* and i am done. Cross
compilation is very easy in Go.
As a computer user for 14 years and a programmer for 12 years, never in my
life i enjoyed the benefits of portable executable. Only the simplest
programs are truly portable and you have to install a huge framework to run
just a simple tool you needed. They sell it like write for 16f84 and run on
windows 10, but it's just marketing.
I ported C codes written for android (such as dalvik/libdex) to windows and
linux with minimal effort though. So in practice, source code portability
is quite enough and Go is very portable.

That's just funny.
** I'm excited about the portable binaries that run in the browser like
NaCl and WebAssembly though.*
