    IDG News Service - Google has invented a new programming language designed to reduce the complexity of coding without compromising the performance of applications.

    Called Go, the language has been tested internally at Google but is still at an experimental stage, so the company is releasing it Tuesday as open-source code in the hope that it will get help with its future development.

    "We developed Go because we had become a bit frustrated with how difficult software development has become in the last 10 years or so," said Rob Pike, principal software engineer at Google.

    This is pretty good news, IMO. If this turns out to be a success, we'll see more games and apps, quickly too. :)
