Pros: comparing Meteor to the other product it clear how much freedom and customization you can get. Which is very good

Cons: Meteor learning curve is steep, I think they need to make easy to deploy a default server with no user interaction so any new user can try out more easily

Pros: JavaScript 100%, WebRealTime, Integration with React and Mongo DB

Cons: JavaScript is just starting to be good as Java or C.

Overall: Has been an entirely new experience, React is totally a new way on programming, I start to like it and all wrapped in Meteor is just fantastic, the ability of to apps web in real time and mobile right away out the box couldn't be better.

Recommendations to other buyers: You have to give it a try, 10min and see what is this about, it can has a lot of uses.

Pros: Strong ecosystem, good documentation, easy to use

Cons: Edge cases can be difficult to solve, potential scaling problems with large apps

Overall: Really amazing framework that lets you get up a prototype very quickly. There's also a very active community forum and Galaxy hosting for apps made with Meteor.

Free, evolutionary, but confusing

Comments: MeteorJS is definitely a new cool framework that I would describe as evolutionary. The way you write server-side and client-side code and it's served up together is really interesting. But there are definitely some weird confusing things about it. For example, all your CSS and js dependencies, the only way you can control the order they are loaded is by alphabetical file naming.... that is really weird. There doesn't seem to be a place that you can simply define the load order other than how the files are named. Really really weird.

The framework is pretty cool, but one of the main downsides to such a unique framework like this is if you build a project using MeteorJS and one day you decide to switch your project to use a different type of framework, you might as well re-write the entire thing since so much custom Meteor-specific code get's written in the meantime for your app.
