Yes because it has lower response latency and performs about 12-15% better than Ubuntu on top of much lower CPU and RAM usage on AWS for hosting the same nodejs apps.

Quantify what you mean by "better," please. I'd assume you're still talking about latency (quantify that, too; TTFB? TTLB? Lower median? p95?) but there's an "and" in there, so I'm not sure. RPS? Throughput? Utilization? Fan0 RPM? Revenue?

I might have been kidding at the end there.

Pardon the questions -- I'm suspicious (seems high) but willing to be surprised.
