The article itself is not bias, it just presented what another presenter stated. As for the presenter, well of course he's bias, and why not? He's part of the kernel community. What I actually found amusing, was how much credit he gave to Google. He basically said "they won".
Actually, this was one of James's least bias presentations (I was not there, I only read the article). Now maybe LWN was bias and made James's presentation seem less bias than it was. But I can't say, because I wasn't there ;)
