Coming from a max/msp background, the strongly timed, and pseudo-threaded
aspects are what I was most struck by.

I like that there's no distinction between audio and control rates, when
timing things (or at least that you can act like there's no distinction).
That makes chuck an environment that makes much more intuitive sense than
other environments, imo, for all kinds of timing related stuff. I can
imagine that not having to deal with that stuff would make chuck a good
choice for people learning about synthesis and digital audio in general.

I was also impressed by the object oriented-ness. Makes it much easier to
scale projects (dragging hundreds of virtual patch cables isn't an
appropriate way for anyone to spend their time imo). Though depending on the
audience that aspect might not grab many people's imaginations.
