In what way did it accomplish this? The style Node has chosen for modeling concurrency is decades old. Twisted has been using it since the late 90's. So JS doesn't have a standard library? Who cares? You still have to write one for your event-loop, which is what you had to do in Twisted. I don't see any rethinking going on, I see steps backwards.

>So JS doesn't have a standard library? Who cares?

If you want people to get the performance benefits from using non-blocking libraries, you care.

Why? You have This write a new standard library no matter what language you choose. Js not having a stdlib doesn't save you work.

If you have established blocking standard libraries people are less likely to write/contribute to non-blocking ones.
