Thoughts on "Go"?by punkish (Priest)

Google announced a new programming language called "Go" see http://golang.org/
It is described as "expressive, concurrent, garbage-collected," which, to me, not only doesn't say much, but whatever it does say, sounds like a language that you and I already know.
Since languages are cultural, and are always evolving (and those that are not busy evolving are busy dying, to paraphrase our national bard), I seek your comments, musings, rants on this new language. Maybe we will even see an Inline::Go sooner or later.
Update: Names behind "Go" -- Robert Griesemer, Rob Pike, Ken Thompson, Ian Taylor, Russ Cox, Jini Kim and Adam Langley (see http://google-opensource.blogspot.com/2009/11/hey-ho-lets-go.html. Very impressive.
