Gutenberg Origins

Meet Gutenberg, a 24th century mecha which the WordPress block editor (dropping in version 5.0) is based off of.

For some reason when the core WordPress team came across Gutes they decided to reverse engineer his OS to create a block editor for WordPress. Seems like a strange thing to use super advanced tech for but who am I to judge.

A person from the 1400’s isn’t really my idea of an appropriate mascot so I decided that the new block editor needed a cooler one.
