As with most things in photography, it depends who is reading it. The article has been in the site for a while. Those who do digital bashed him for comparing apples and oranges, those who do mostly analog agreed with him. Of course at the time the thread where the guy lost 4 files he spent gobs of hours working on did not exist.
Me, I am sticking with what I like and know works.
As to the silver print coment, to each its own, dont agree with him but I am not bothered by his comment either.
