I just read this article about node.js http://teddziuba.com/2011/10/node-js-is-cancer.html. It seems reasonable. So my question is why is gentoo portage website being re-written in node.js when it's this bad?

Simple, it's not an official Gentoo project, so the owner, Mike, can do what he wants.

The real answer, it's what all the cool kids use today :lol:

lol...I hope not! From what I read it looks like a dumb down way to write a website. But then again, I find most of the top notch web developers only want to use javascript when they do not have any other choice.
