I think people understands 'NoSQL' in a wrong way. 'NoSQL' stands for 'Not
only SQL' . The advantage of 'NoSQL' is
1) It is scalable
2) Distributed data storage and processing
3) The great Map Reduce concept is there

Above all all the NoSQL seems to follow same specification / standard which
is absent in RDBMS world .
NoSQl paltform like CouchDB gives not only data stoorage bust also facility
to build web applications (See couchapps tool)

Big players like Facebook etc uses NoSQL also (They use MySQL too).

Comparing NoSQL with RDBMS is like comparing apples with Orange; that is
what I feel
