I rather read his article as "if you choose tools/programming languages that are the industry standard, you get industry-standard employees and industry-standard (=average) code; if you choose tools/languages that are the exception, you might get exceptional code."

Basically, one type of employer is playing it safe and the other is taking a gamble.
