I saw that, and have already started a list of replies to send to Mike personally.   Particularly annoying that he still uses the non-portable argument about coarrays after all the work the gfortran people did.   But, keep in mind that Mike is a leader in the C++ religion and is hardly unbiased on this topic.  No surprise that once C++ 2020 arrives all will be fabulous. 

His binding to C++ does lead him to argue that ?new? languages (i.e. not C, C++, Fortran) are unlikely to get traction.  On that score, I think he is likely to get wider agreement. 

Cheers,
Bill
