Very useful when Couch runs on lean device like PI, and for many other cases.

I love Couchdb because it's a database that talks HTTP/REST.

Despite drawbacks, I still think CouchDB has a lot of potential to revolutionize the way people write webapps. I certainly still plan to use it for quick hacking, and Couch’s append-only design means I’ll never have to worry about my data getting corrupted.

The experience we had with CouchDB was pretty positive. It didn't enforce schemas, so it was easy to change schemas in our code without worrying about a data migration. Overall, it was relatively intuitive to use.
