Some elements are subjective, yes, I didn't mean to say the whole of
the blog post was objective. Just that the main point was: that
graphical interfaces are superior to textual ones, because they can do
all that textual interfaces can, and more.

You contradict yourself: "objective, factual misstatements" are not opinions.
Also, they are not okay. I would be interested that you point out
those factual misstatements.

No, it merely suggests that *some* people think that Eclipse
(&similar) "provide useful things but that "graphicality of interface"
is not necessarily one". Maybe if usage of eclim was widespread it
could give some credence to your point, but that is not the case.
