Actually, he said:

"Cut the jabber - learn from others how to pick and choose the "best" OS
for the application at hand."

Which, to me, includes reviewing tests others have performed. If I were
looking for an HTTP/SMB server, this would be a report I might look at
closely. That is why it is important that people are made aware of the
extraordinary lengths Mindcraft have gone to in order to invalidate the
accuracy of the survey. The jabber will hopefully save a lot of people
from making mistakes based on the horrendous misinformation presented by
the Mindcraft debacle.
