I'm with you. I get the reasoning completely.

In my case though I've been changed by elixir and erlang, have you spent any time with them?

Once you've gotten around the whole 'let it crash' concept and supervision, and _NOT_ handling errors, it's very difficult to go back.

I wish I had a "systems-level" language where I could do this stuff, but I guess I'll continue to wait..

FWIW my C ends up having probably equal amounts of error checking as my go does, somehow it feels less repetitive though (perhaps because I use a macro or two for such things in C)
