It seems like a nice language that has attracted both C++ and Python developers.
Unfortunately it has some problems with garbage collection for 32-bit apps, but that's less of an issue for GUIs and not an issue for 64-bit - see http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3814020 and http://code.google.com/p/go/issues/detail?id=909#c29 ... If 32-bit is required, probably Python is a better choice, and the GUI options are much more mature there.
