I think he makes some good points that are worth listening to. His
perspective and values are very narrow, though, and I don't think that
any such person who doesn't clearly come out and declare that should
be giving other people advice about what system to use. Also, as has
been pointed out by Reece, some of his assessments are so broad and
sweeping as to practically contradict his own data.
