The article is a personal opinion and that is fine. For me it is wrong. No
mention of SCons, nor that Gradle build C++ as well as for the JVM languages.
Some of the points about Meson are right, some wrong, but it is a personal
opinion and that is fine. 

I shall continue to use Meson and Ninja because they are way, way better than
Autotools (not mentioned but still used a lot) and better than SCons for many
use cases. But this is also a personal opinion.
