Whichever it is called (I prefer Golang), does anyone have any opinions about it?

I dabble in coding a bit, nothing too serious, and have kept to Perl and C, but C can be a real PITA with its requiring some hand in memory management. I have been looking at Golang; there is a good tutorial here http://tour.golang.org with a sandbox to play in.

It looks very similar to C but apparently with some faults and shortcomings ironed out. Only thing I don't like so far is that it forbids placing the opening brace of a block on a new line - I have always liked to have the associated opening and closing braces of a block vertically aligned with each other for easy recognition!
