Interesting questions.

What if jQuery was not free to use before?

Most developers just simple wouldn't use it. And some would just use a pirated version of it or use a similar library. One thing is for sure, jQuery would have a significantly less usage rates.

What if nodejs never existed?

That would suck. I hate PHP and .net

What if there is no Open Source projects?

Tough to say but that would suck for sure.
EDIT: that would mean no brackets, atom text editor and VSCode.

What if the idea of reconciliation or Virtual Dom implemented on early 2000?

JavaScript was no where near close to getting it's shit together back then. So, If there was an implementation of virtual DOM in 2000s? It would be a bad one.
