i think this is a bad explanation. in your example eventual consistency is actually inconsistent but it really is not. i think strong consistency is when your architecture does not provide you with consistency and you should take extreme measures to apply it. but in eventual consistency, your architecture works in a way that your data becomes eventually consistent without using complicated d-locks.
