I love the concept of what you are trying to accomplish and I like the feel of the blocks but OMG this is so not ready for a live website. To edit an existing page is a nightmare not because I can’t figure out how to use it but because it crashes and freezes alot. Then takes me to the posts admin navigation. When I go back to pages and click edit to edit a page it crashes. So I deleted the page thinking maybe it was a bad page. Tried to create a page and it will never save or publish. The link to the classic editor doesn’t work. Gutenberg has crashed another live website in the sense of actually creating content. We have worked for over a year and now total stand still.
Gutenberg I love the concepts and where it is going but this wasn’t ready at all and should not have been pushed out. We spend several thousand per year to run our websites and honestly this is the first time we are thinking of looking for another CMS. We love wordpress but this is likely the straw that breaks the camels back for us. Not cool at all. Not Cool!
UPDATE: Since the recent WP update many of the challenges I was running into have been resolved. In having to rebuild some pages I installed a few block addons like Stack and Atomic. I have since deleted 7 Plugins… Yes 7 Plugins have been replaced. This is great for the website builder as the load speeds are noticeably different. Gutenberg is impressive. I still wish they would have waited a bit longer before launching but after several days of using it and the recent update things are running much smoother thanks to Gutenberg. We should see a more secure wordpress in the future also with so much coming stock with WordPress.
