It isn’t meant as a hot take. It’s just some vapid business article written for middle management who doesn’t have any actual technical knowledge.

the best solution is to nationalize Microsoft and Apple and open source all their software, so Linux users can enjoy it too.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this article was commissioned by a big tech company like Apple or Microsoft.

None of those reasons show any reason for proprietary software to be inherently any better than open source, it is just comparing a specific product or service to another one and not that being proprietary in and of itself has any advantages for the business.
