There are always posts where people ask if page builders will still exist now that core has the block editor. Yes, yes they will. With page builders they are allowed to build an ecosystem.
Every block, theme, etc is all in one place. Do you know haw amazing that is as a user. What if I had an iPhone and I has to look in 50 different places for apps. That’s insane, no one would do it. They found a way for paid and free products to coexist and it works just fine.
Could imagine a world where you don’t have to do this crazy freemium model? I’d love to be able to make a something cool and just charge people a fair price for it without having to play this game where people are tricked into paying for something they should have paid for in the first place.
