Well, the article did contain very valid points, but the altitude of Tom's answers hide that information pretty effectively.
One of the points he tried to make is that a version control system should be distributed and should support merge operations between branches easily. CVS does not have these properties and Subversion while addressing other CVS shortcomings does not resolve these points either while making the system administration more complex compared with CVS.
