It is really not that bad!
Getting forked by WordPress really can be a good thing.
Earlier today I read an article by Gary Pendergrast. He is a programmer that has been around for quite a while and is part of the WordPress core programming team.
His perspective on what is happening with Gutenberg and WordPress editors is priceless. I have been doing a lot of reading on Gutenberg, and installed it once. Because I have not made a full on 100% commitment to learn the ways of Gutenberg I may not be one to comment on whether or not this is a good move by WordPress.
However, as a small business owner I need to have a very stable platform from which to run my business. It doesn't take a rocket scientist, statistician (of which I have some experience), or a search engine specialist to realize that there is a bit of controversy in the WordPress world.
ClassicPress.net is a movement being put in place to preserve much of the community aspect of WordPress.org. The biggest differences are the community input into what is being developed from what is now the WordPress core, and the continuity of a community driven platform.
