It’s arguably just an age thing, as it takes time for a language to mature and even longer for a business to feel comfortable to adopt it. It’s likely easier to find Python devs than Go devs and the same for ecosystem around it. Python is 30 yrs old and Go is 10.

In my current position I could opt for using Svelte over React but then I have to find devs to code it and my juniors would struggle to get self help answers from Google when they get blocked. Today If they get stuck a quick Google and they can unblock them self. I choose React for my team because my decisions will affect the success of the company, therefor I play it safe.
