Most developers question the benefits of modeling but none (as far as I know) would argue against the use of version control systems. It turns out that neither of them have empirical evidence that support the benefits they claim.

"MDE is not a cool technology and therefore people needs a stronger argument to adopt it."

 MDE is not a good technology and therefore it declined after an initial hype.

"MDE is not a good technology" <- This is your opinion. I may have a different one. The whole point of the post (and the great comments in it) is that in SW Engineering is difficult to go past subjective opinions or anecdotical evidence and get a "proof" general enough in favour or against a technology

How's this for a proof? Without a model, I can still build software. Without version control, I can't collaborate with my peers. This article is crap.

Without version control you can still build software. Better or worse but you can. I don´t think the first program ever built was a version control system.
