Node.js to go native on Windows with Microsoft's help
In a blog posting, Dahl explains that Microsoft are providing "official guidance and engineering resources" to the effort to produce an official node.exe which will work on Windows Azure and Windows versions "as far back as Server 2003". Rackspace have committed developer Bert Belder to the effort. The port will use the IOCP high performance I/O API. There are no release dates set for the new work, but it will probably arrive with the release of Node 0.5.
