Comment Re:Can Go still not load shared libraries? (Score 5, Insightful) 221

Static linking might be semi-adequate for stuff that you compile at home, but for any code that's distributed using static is a sabotage. For example, when there's a bug (security or not) in a library, you can't avoid recompiling the world. That's why distributions go for 100% dynamic linking, and why they dislike current Go.
