Thanks for pointing that out. I kind of like that guy. Although he writes:
This kind of C++ hating gets me fired up and defensive
he stays surprisingly calm and objective when responding to comments on his own blog (on the C++ hater post you pointed out).
I have to admit that I am very surprised about Evernote re-implementing their Windows application in C++, when I would have expected that for desktop applications C# / WPF is the way to go nowadays. I would really be interested in what technology they used for the GUI. Unfortunately, the question (asked in the comments) was never answered.
