Thank you for your response, Dan. It is quite reasonable on the face of it.
Contrast this with other languages in other problem domains. In the server space, for example, you have lots of choice. Java, C#, PHP, Python, and Ruby are immensely popular. I’m sure you’ll throw up that old chestnut about Node.js, but the IT community is starting to wake up to the truth about Node. The recent rise of the Go language also stands in the way of further growth for Node, because performance and scalability issues are now pressing. The Node model has real limitations.
