I Just Can't Understand Node.JS, Any Resources and Tutorials Out There To Help Me Out?

Problem

I know this question has been asked multiple times on this site in one way or another, but even after everything I've looked at I still can't for the life of me work out Node.JS nor how to efficiently use it as well as knowing what it's good for.

I consider myself an advanced JavaScript developer. I'm not just talking about knowing jQuery or Prototype, but rather actually knowing the underlying language quite well which from my understanding is all you really need to learn Node.JS as it is server-side JavaScript after all.

I develop on a Windows machine, but have just installed Virtualbox and an Ubuntu Server ISO to develop Node.JS applications in it. Where do I begin? I know the language, but what now? I can't seem to understand how applications are written in it.

Another question (if I hadn't already asked a million of them) is should I be using a framework for Node.JS like Geddy or Express or should I learn Node.JS and then consider a framework?
