On another thread here Andrew Misplon made the following statement, and I’m a bit confused – although I hope it is true: “The choice is yours, there is no pressure to change or update existing pages unless that’s something you’d like to do”. Original thread here: https://siteorigin.com/thread/will-gutenberg-make-page-builder-obsolete/

I was under the impression that when WordPress updates to 5.0, later this year that it will switch the editor over to Gutenberg completely.

Which is correct? I’m totally happy using the current editor and SiteOrigin, I would really like to continue doing so – and based on many reviews I read on Gutenberg, I think a lot of people would like to avoid it if at all possible.
