That personality description sounds like someone you either feel passionately loyal too or absolutely loath.
Especially when he's right.
Personally I've always wondered how come whenever people boasted about how many more transistors they put on this years chips they didn't mention the power supply was still the same size. It turns out in fact they could not even manage that level of efficiency.
BTW according to NASA power faults and design cockups are the #1 cause of on orbit failures of satellites and probes. People trust that the PSU "just works." But that is a very naive PoV.
