It's built to handle asynchronous I/O from the ground up. Other environments have async. I/O features, but Node's the first environment where it's really pervasive. In most environments you'll find only limited pieces available in async. flavors, but in Node everything (or nearly everything) is async.-only. It's actually hard to write non-async. code in Node!Now, there's some debate over whether async. programming is really the silver bullet some claim it is, but in my mind there's little doubt that it's a really good match to a lot of common web- and network-development problems.
It's "just JavaScript." Every time I  context switch between Python on the backend and JavaScript on the frontend I waste stupid amounts of time making silly syntax errors — semicolons in my Python, missing braces in my JavaScript, etc. Some days I might switch a dozen or more times, and it really feels like I'm wasting brain cycles swapping in and out my language knowledge. Staying in a single language feels faster.
It's new, so it has the benefit of being able to learn from previous languages' and environments' mistakes. Better, Node can correct those mistakes without the backwards-compatibility concerns. For example, the Node package installer, npm, is already quite a bit better than many of its equivalents. All in all, Node feels very polished and modern; it hasn't had time to accumulate the cruft other languages/environments have.
