You are correct that Joe is not a middleware bigot. Neither am I a back-end bigot. but I interpret the sentence above that you quote exactly the same now as I did when I responded to it.

You either fully embrace a software and leverage it for all of its scalability, security, and performance features or you are leaving money on the table. The word "complete" has no value. How should it be interpreted ... Use 78.2% of the features but not all? Maybe only 74.5%. I know he used the word ... but it provides not a single bit of clarity. It still translates to "don't take maximum advantage of proprietary features".
