I read both, and I disagree. The article presents one viewpoint and makes that clear. The blog with the disagreeing opionion is linked. The article facts don't seem to disagree with the Arch developer's blog, only their interpretation. (This guy comes away as very very sensitive, by the way.)
For the record: I have never used Arch Linux, don't intend do, and don't know any of the involved persons.
I assume that you are as uninvolved in Arch Linux as I am, otherwise you would have surely noted that when calling for censorship of an opinionated article.
