I went to a job interview a little while ago for a company that uses Node.js. I'd always quite liked JavaScript (apart from the DOM methods) and it stood out in my mind as it is the most common prototype based object oriented language generally in use. This made me think about using it as a general purpose scripting language. I downloaded and built Google's V8 JavaScript engine and quickly had a standalone shell for JavaScript. I plan to play with this.
