I'm in the camp saying that no generics is a huge missed opportunity, especially because it wouldn't be that difficult to add and IMO doesn't make the language that much more complicated to learn (hardly, I would say). No generics means we're still coding old-fashioned "for" loops all the time, instead of using the powerful data manipulation abstractions (map, filter, reduce etc) which virtually every other modern language offers. Go is nice, but give us generics and it will be a dozen times nicer!
