Agree, though this is what happens to non open standard languages - take adobe flash as a case of a overly dominantly closed source that was the standard in use like java is today. Java needs to be controled by a open standards body if it is to maintain its popularity. I played with the firefox mobile OS the other day, was a plugin for firefox and with that how long until all mobile operating systems are plugins for browsers. The CPU's are there now to do it (least as long as you have a native compiled version unlike a dev kit that emulates ARM CPU's upon your x86).
As has been shown and the mighty can fall, even from that height as adobe flash demonstrated, technology moves forward and with that the GO programming language is impressing me more and more each day.
