I remember you criticized on twitter this point of Node some time ago and the response of some leaders of Node community was like "Sorry, this isn't Erlang" and "Erlang is better but it's harder"



Yeah, pretty naive responses, but understandably most people who have been in the community for a long time don't want to admit the reality, seeing as node is what powers most of our jobs haha. Bottom line is node has a massive flaw, and it should be fixed, at least core members should have interest in fixing it.

Especially with tools like Go there's a lot of pressure to NOT use node in production when great alternatives are available. Node still has the "JavaScript edge", but if fault tolerance remains as poor as it is now that won't matter for long.
