Exception: Go programs, because those are always statically linked and don't
depend on the C standard library. Notably, Go practically requires that
everything be Open Source, otherwise you can't compile it in the first place
and therefore couldn't have made the first use of it.

And which company came up with Go? Hint: the first two letters match.
