Staltz makes some salient points in his article. The title is needlessly inflammatory, though. Something like "Why Cycle.js/Rx is a Superior Paradigm" would have done the trick.

I recommend reading the article for interest's sake, even if you find the title offputting.

Look out for the latest Exploring ES6 Leanpub update email, you'll find your coupon link there.

Thanks Evan. I've enjoyed using Vue.js for some pretty large applications in the past and am thoroughly looking forward to trying 1.0.0.
