Bah, humbug.  As long as there's a need for industrial strength massive 
concurrency, and no serious alternative, it doesn't really matter what 
it's called.

Anybody who tries to write a massively concurrent application in Ruby, 
Scala, Node.js, Cojure (or Java for that matter), gets what they deserve.

Just one man's opinion, of course.
