As a PL guy, I can say: both. Despite both calling themselves "systems programming languages", they serve completely different niches. Go is for web-services/web-apps development; Rust is for truer systems software (if they keep GC optional it could even be used for kernel development).

yes I agree with rust being the only one I could consider a potential 'systems language' of those two.
