Why this project?
Because sometimes you just want one file to do one thing without running a whole new server
Because you already have apache running on your server and you want to easily try out node.js.
Why not this project?
You want to run an actual node.js server. (If you have a server already running apache on port 80 see this post for how to get a node.js server running as well http://fortnightlabs.posterous.com/deploying-with-nodejs)
