I don't think that 'OOP as currently conceived by many languages didn't fulfil all the promises made about it' is particularly controversial.

Especially the idea that we can (or even should) model reality into classes representing things seems a bit odd in retrospect. We found ways to work around these limitations (like design patterns, not using inheritance), but the very fact that we need these things shows the limitations of the paradigm.

I came from this from the other way, I learned functional programming and am now very happily merging the 2 paradigms together. (we all do, LINQ is FP)

OOP does some things better, FP does others better (like concurrency), the most important thing is to keep it simple. People get hung up on reuse and abstractions, while they should be focussed on cognitive load and simplicity.
