Better yet: ZeroMQ is not even a language. What ZMQ does it lets your write extremely performant and reliable distributed systems in any language. It is a layer over sockets. Any complex system will have to interact with other complex systems, which are written in other languages. Say you develop a service and a lot of people want to use it. What API are you going to expose? One that is only based on Erlang primitives? Certainly not, because then you have limited your user-base to a small number of people.
