Rich Hickey's Tweet came to mind:

If you think you know how I ought to spend my time, come over and mow my lawn while I expound on the problems of dev entitlement culture.

I'm fine with RSC, Commander Pike, and those other benevolent dictators continuing to make much better decisions that I certainly ever would and more importantly to be super careful with what they add to the language. I write Swift, JS, objC, and Go. Go is the preferred language because it's simple and I have the entire SDK in my head.

I use Go a lot. I can't say i've ever run into not having generics being a huge deal.

Let's face it, for most programmers out there, generics is for type safe collections. If slices and maps weren't built into Go then i'd prolly have moved to something else.

That said i'd like to see more built in data structures
