Yes, indeed. Overall a nice article.
Curious, though, that he lists as a weakness the difficulty of doing a
remote procedure call.
I've personally never thought that rpc:call(Node,M,F,A) is particularly
difficult to understand or use. Why, you don't even have to write
"at the very least you should be able to wait for a
specific message and then grab it from the message
queue while still processing another message."
Indeed, and this is particularly easy to do in Erlang, while quite
difficult in, say, UML.
What am I missing here?
