From what I heard from him it was pretty clear he didn't like either one.
I understand that but was he as shtark about it?

I heard that from him directly, as well. But there is a vast distance between that and calling R' Shlomo Zalman's Psak, no such thing.

I assume when he said
something along the lines of “There’s no such thing as holding you can open bottles”.
he meant that the guy you're asking doesn't personally "hold" that way, rather is being somech on the opinion of someone else.

Was that regarding the current plastic bottle caps or the old metal ones?
I’m not sure. I believe it was in an English compilation of questions and answers written by a Talmid.

I know some poskim permit washing tablecloths, shmattes etc on Chol Hamoed. Does anyone know who holds what? Also, why should it be ossur (I would think it should be muttar with same sevara as childrens clothing)?

Do some not say it on חול המועד?
Yes it is mostly among nusach sfard.
Looked around a bit, mostly seeing people denouncing it.

https://hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=41190&st=&pgnum=157
Regarding the בוטשאטשער see here, not quite fair to quote him as supportive.


There are Rishonim that explicitly say to say it מוצאי שבת , and it seems the Arizal and בעל שם טוב said it then as well.
Rav Moshe says it isn't considered a legitimate minhag: (he’s talking about the very scenario described in the OP)


Looking specifically if someone gives the reason aygart mentioned.
Finally found someone who gave this reason, see דברי יציב סוף סימן ק״ג,
https://hebrewbooks.org/pdfpager.aspx?req=15079&st=&pgnum=206
although he doesn't seem be a fan of the minhag. Interestingly though he says that wouldn't work for חול המועד because work for דבר האבד is permitted. However as referenced above we do find that reason given not to say במה מדליקין.

Look at the bottom footnotes אות ח׳, and the last line particularly. (IINM Reb Moshe writes on the chassidim changing to sfard that it's also not a minhag)

He doesn’t know that, he assumes it. There doesn’t seem to be any indication that it is true.
(IINM Reb Moshe writes on the chassidim changing to sfard that it's also not a minhag) 
No he doesn’t say that. He’s differentiating here in that that it doesn’t appear to have been initiated by Gedolim, totally different than nusach sfard.

Why do people still say the printed version of ולמלשינים when it’s clear that is a censored version and it should be ולמשמדים?

DDF is primarily a halacha forum

Can one read DDF in the bathroom?

Is moving to a brand new house allowed on Sefirah?

Writing brand new because it is a bigger Simcha then moving back after renovations

Causing the lights to go on are presumably a shabbos violation, so there should a חיוב חינוך not to allow him to do so at that age.

It just means there is no electricity storage (AKA battery), it's the energy that is being generated that is being used immediately. I don't see why it would make difference though.
