We Called it Gutenberg for a Reason

Fresh off the heels of the WP Tavern post that I linked to last week, Matt Mullenweg has written a nice treatise on the WordPress Gutenberg project.

Creating great software will never make every person happy. We’re not creating The Perfect Product, we’re choosing a path between many good options, weighing all of the inevitable trade-offs that come from a change, listening, shipping, and then doing it all over again. Iterating. My life’s work is improving WordPress. I firmly believe that Gutenberg is the direction that will provide the most benefit to the maximum number of people while being totally in line with core WordPress’s philosophies and commitment to user freedom.
