java script won the war ? or java/c++ sux

that is quote of the day

At the USENIX annual conference last month, Gmail engineer Adam de Boor surprised the audience by noting that the company's Gmail service was written entirely in JavaScript, and that all of its code, around 443,000 lines worth, was written by hand.

i think it doesn't matter in what you write , scaling is not a mater of language design but a architecture problem the way you make the application scale to thousands of servers

languages designed only for that task don't work , in fact any general purpose languge can scale be it c++ or freepascal or if you really want nodejs or gluescript combination
all it takes is doing the design with on a clean sheet

here is one cool demo with nodejs http://jeffkreeftmeijer.com/2010/experimenting-with-node-js/
