I agree with him on many of his OOP criticisms.

Truth to tell, with the benefit of hindsight, every OS, every framework, every language would be different to the ones we use.

The sad reality, though, is that we now live in a world of (often huge and clunky) objects and that's the world that we have to interact with; so even if we write our bits in an object-free way, there's still going to be a whole ton of boxing and unboxing to be done in the middleware whenever we need to talk to something else. We simply can't be entirely object free in an object-obsessed world.

Coders, in retrospect, probably did embrace OO with too much enthusiasm and we're quite possibly about to see a generation dive done the FP rabbit-hole with the same blind devotion and similarly mixed results.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
