golang first impressions
What did I do with golang until now:
Install on linux? great: fast, seamless.
Workspace organization? great, simple, clean (wks/src, wks/bin, wks/pkg, and also wsk/src/github.com/user/project)
Compile on linux? (small test programs) great: code auto formatted, then a multi-threaded 64-bit executable produced and installed on a single command in milliseconds.
get golang source on linux? no problem.
Compile golang source on Linux? no problem (I did this to cross-compile the multi-thread test as 32-bit exe on a 64-bit machine, to test torn-reads… but this is for another post)
Install on windows? fast, seamless.
Compile on windows the same small tests? no problem.
