Fastest idempotent way to install nodejs in Ubuntu

Originally I created a gist tailored at Ubuntu however a fastest way is just to use a Plain Old Bash script to install the binaries as presented here. This will work in any linux and MAC OSX.

Nice Nestor, check out a lot of people have been using that lately, including myself and it works great. Really nice when you have to upgrade.

Thanks Jose. I will try nvm as soon as I have a chance and report back if that result in even faster installation.

nvm needs to touch bashrc, resource etc. It is also slower than just downloading from plain old bash.
