Anecdotal data point (against the article): I have almost the same setup as this guy (2008 Mac Pro with 24GB and a 2011 MacBook Pro with 4GB), and even though I torture those machines with many hungry apps running concurrently, I haven't run into the same issues. Furthermore, I can't reproduce the high Inactive RAM count nor the high page-out activity, even after weeks of uptime.
