Go is great as a language. But like Ruby, not installed generally. And fewer resources. If it was a greenfield new OS, yeah, Go for sure. But for practical reasons, Python I think.
As these are systems that I control, there is no reason Go cannot be installed.
Between your comments and prior ones from @stacksofplates I think I might try Go in order to learn it.
You normally wouldn't install it anyway as it's not a scripting language. You'd just compile your binary and ship that to your systems.
I completely misunderstood that about Go. Okay, I will do a bit of checking and decide what I want to do.
oh sorry, I figured you knew. That's why I never look at it, I don't want to deal with binaries in that way. But nothing wrong with that. Write it on your machine at home, compile, ship binary. Works just fine.
As fixed tasks, this is not a bad solution. So I will keep it in mind.
Right, no big deal in this case.
