Subject purely curious - couch/spidermonkey vs node/v8
Date Thu, 02 Sep 2010 05:47:09 GMT
I've got no real issue or concern, was just purely curious and was
thinking about couch's use of SpiderMonkey as the JS engine tonight.

Is there a reason why couchdb uses spidermonkey, vs v8 (as node.js is
using)? Is it license related? Too much work for too little gain? Was
V8 not around when choosing an engine (likely, given the timelines...I
think)?

Anyway, just curious.

thanks,

andy
