The cruel irony here is that simplicity was a foundational goal and major rallying point for Java. Here's a website from 1997 describing it: http://www.cafeaulait.org/course/week1/16.html

Ignoring the last part that obsesses over the glory of OOP, replacing Java with Go in that page is... pretty spookily familiar!

Maybe it's a bit too early to judge but IMO Go has not introduced any new language complexity since its public launch.
