Being boring really is what I love most about Go. It doesn't change much and there is a culture of simplicity, so it's quick to onboard new devs and there isn't a lot to get your head around. That also makes it good for building large projects, as the complexity is in the domain and the application, not clever uses of the language itself.
I almost wish they'd make it more boring and take a few things out, but it's probably too late now to change the language much and people would complain vociferously. Things I never use and wish it didn't have: panic, goto, labels, struct tags, executable comments, even arrays.
The only things I'd like to see improved significantly are enums, errors, and user-space generic collections (coming soon!).
