I think I agree with both of you guys.

Letting a candidate talk about the technologies the likes, not asking the company stack is a great to measure his excitement, why?

I think that when you ask about the technologies that the company uses, if the candidate is not fully aware of how to use them, or only have a slight idea he may feel a bit uncomfortable and cornered.

However, if you let him speak about the technologies he's worked/experienced with, what problems he solved or tried to solve will be a better way to see his passion. People to talk about themselves, and letting the candidates talk about things in his personal experience would be a good thing and more practical one
