Node.js in Ubuntu 13.10

Never a fan of installing of any packages in Ubuntu by source code compilation. Found this answer on getting the latest version of node.js through Chris Lea's Personal Package Archive (PPA) [4][5].

Installation steps as follows:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install -y python-software-properties python g++ make
$ sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:chris-lea/node.js
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install nodejs

$ node --version
v0.10.24
