If you work in programming for any length of time, you will sooner or later be forced to work with a language that, whether due to odd syntax, too much (or too little) flexibility, poor debugging capabilities or any number of other reasons, makes you pull your hair out. Some languages are relatively easy to avoid (e.g., Visual Basic), while others are so pervasive (e.g., Perl) that you'd probably have to quit programming altogether to avoid.

While I don't agree with the actual arguments, the author does indeed capture the arguments people use against the different languages. It says e.g. that Java is slow. This is absolutely not the case (Java is one of the fastest languages around), but it's exactly the argument that (ignorant) Java haters use to this day.
