From someone who mostly deals with embedded systems, I like that. All of the modern system languages essentially rely on having a virtual memory model and force you to use GC. Both these prerequisites essentially rule out something like Go for a microcontroller (it can work, just not be useful beyond a novelty).

There are a few things I'd personally want to see, like lambdas and nested functions, some more intelligent error handling, fixed point math, etc. But its a good step forward.
