Not sure why you say that Go competes with Java? Go was designed as a systems language with a focus on concurrency and robustness while Rust does much the same but foregoing simplicity (the Go gc is incredibly efficient though it leads to bit more memory usage than necessary while Rust leaves you to guide ownership).

Incidentally Go took much of Perl/python spotlight as a language for high performing system tools (docker, kubernetes, terraform)
