This question goes out to anyone that's used or tried to use node.js in a serious project. How stable is it? What did you use it for? How robust is it?

Personally, I haven't used it in production but I know several companies already did. For example, GitHub uses Node.js to power the download server.

The bottom of the index page of the node.js wiki on github lists a number of companies that are using node.js, some apparently for live and public applications which would generally be considered to be "in production".

Sorry I thought I'd done that. I've edited the post to correctly add the link. – David Spillett Oct 31 '10 at 15:24
