No he can't, with comments like
/"open source programs have great appeal for people who want to tinker with computers but almost none for those who actually want to do something."/

He would not be able to use Google as it is running open source programs, and he wouldn't use it as it's against his principles.
/"//Servers are //commodity-class <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodity_computing>////x86 <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86>////PCs <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_computer>//running customized versions of //Linux <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux>//."/

Further to that, finding a book with good amazon ranking would also be useless, as Amazon is also running open source, so he also would NOT use that service.

In fact he probably doesn't do much web surfing with the open source Apache dominating the HTTP internet server market
/"Since April 1996 Apache has been the most popular HTTP server software in use. As of December 2012 Apache was estimated to serve 63.7% of all active //websites <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Website>//and 58.49% of the top servers across all domains"//
There is a big chance the writers forum were he made those comments is also powered by an open source program.

Sorry for the outburst, I just can't believe how polarised some people are against open source programs. Personally I dont think you should feed him with fuel, just let it drop and continue on with your own life using the programs you enjoy, I dont think you have anything to prove. (but I do understand the sense of outrage after hearing the comments)
