Why is node.js faster than LC server?

In looking at node.js it seems that two things stand out - LC server waits for the database to send a reply, rather than setting an event listener, and perhaps node.js launches faster when a request comes in?

Is this accurate? Could LC server be modified to run as fast as node? I would love to feel comfortable using LC server for millions of users simultaneously - which I realize would take more than just speeding up the server software.
