Selling Node in my own (cheap) way..

Node.js is a new framework (paradigm) for building scalable web servers and the like….a peer to other frameworks like Twisted (see also) or EventMachine (see also) – Only better

Very feature rich,

· Node builds scalable network programs

· Purely event based infrastructure

· Works on the concept of event loops which are non-blocking in its case

· Low network connection cost

· Better performance than thread based connections at high system loads

· No direct locking by Node – Programs have low locking overhead

· Developers can develop systems fast – even a web server that otherwise would require complex design

· Enables multiprocessing through straight forward fork () calls.
