8. Uses observables for data binding

Models are observed for changes. This is a well known pattern. Can be more performant than dirty-checking in some cases.

10. Works with AMD libraries such as require.js

Asynchronous Module Definition libraries allow for easy modular, clean programming. If a framework does not work well with such libraries, it might have some other means to modularize its components and resolve dependencies, like Dependency Injection.

11. number of years old

Older frameworks are often more stable, battle-proven and there are more resources and tutorials on them. As a company you have a larger talent pool to recruit from.
Sammy JS: 4years
