Some nice incentives to use nodejs. Its good to see them trying to branch out to the corporate field but for a primarily open source curated product this might just be a last ditch attempt to stop the community from creating applications for io.js rather than nodejs.

At the end of the day these kinds of frameworks rely solely on developer numbers rather than if the solution is any good. CoffeeScript is a prime example of this, its hardly beneficial over vanila JavaScript yet a lot of people use it.
