Andrew Cholakian writes, on his blog:
The more time I spend with ZeroMQ, the less I can think of a reason I'd ever have to open up a raw TCP or UDP socket, except in extraordinary circumstances, again. I think of ZMQ as common IPC and network communication patterns abstracted into messages and sockets that don't require a broker infrastructure. The whole message queue aspect of it is great, but ZMQ is really designed for a whole range of situations you'd never use AMQP for, and IMHO, that's the truly interesting thing about it. You don't really run ZMQ brokers (mostly), you communicate socket to socket using queue semantics.
