I dunno. I think that, if you really want to use something, you'll overlook a lot of 'beauty marks'. I imagine that they would do that because they want to use it. Obviously they would fix anything causes bugs, but things that might make it less practical for real use (which may be things well outside the language itself such as packaging, build schemes, tools integration, whatever, and obviously ongoing changes to the language) they might well very much give the benefit of the doubt that it will get taken care of and put in the work to get around it, whereas another company wouldn't commit until after those things are taken care of in most cases because they can't afford to do otherwise.

There's a huge chicken and egg thing all around. I wouldn't commit to learning a language like Go or Rust (meaning seriously, not just poking around) unless I knew there was a substantial likelihood it would benefit me career-wise (which translates to there are lots of jobs doing it) but there won't likely be lots of jobs doing it unless companies believe that there is a large talent pool out there to draw from.)

And of course with Go there's the problem that Google drops projects right and left all the time and a lot of people wouldn't want to commit themselves to anything that fundamentally if it comes from Google because they could get seriously screwed. And I imagine a fair number of folks don't want to contribute any more to Google's hold on the industry (and the world.)
