abysmal tooling? ... extremely primitive concurrency support?? Are you talking about Go?

No fully-functional debugger. Minimal instrumentation. No good code transformation or refactoring tools. No concurrent data structures.

It is pretty much an undisputed fact that modern Java tooling beats mostly everything else out there for any other language. If you're coming from a more modern JVM background, yes, the first thing I have felt was that most plang tooling is abysmal ... relative to the JVM.
