There's no other web development platform on the planet where 
development time is more rapid.  And for a startup that doesn't have a 
legacy software albatross to worry about, the development speed 
difference can easily mean the difference between success and failure.  
The fact that it is niche technology is actually an advantage for a 
startup, because it just makes it easier to compete with the big boys.

And, like Paul Graham said about using Lisp for Yahoo Stores 
development, "because I could" (paraphrased).
