[Go] Out with JScript, in with Go?

Today I ran a large JScript against a month's worth of hourly REST traffic logs. The logs were parsed and manipulated into a series of tables in an Access database. It took about 12 hours to run. 12 hours ... and on a decently-specced laptop -- a Toshiba Satellite Pro L670.

So I'm looking around for something as flexible as JScript/javascript but which produces native binaries ... and Go seems like a good possibility. Any other suggestions?

I know, I did say 24 hours initially. Frightening the effect of 4 hours sleep on the middle-aged mind.
