Do you have any particular reasons to prefer Node (assuming Javascript) to Clojure/Groovy?

Asking, because I do most of my development in Clojure and find it much nicer than Node both for POC and production. There's also self-hosted Clojurescript now that runs without a dependency on JVM.

Honestly, because I'm pretty good w/ Node (or just JS in general) and haven't invested the time to get good w/ Groovy or Clojure at this point.

I've only just played around with Clojure and I've written a middling amount of Groovy, but the vast majority of it involved Jenkins build pipelines, so I don't really count it.
