    Pros: 

    Ease of getting a site up and running

    Cons: 

    Limited free templates, plug ins.

    The ease of use overcomes the limitations of this shared platform.

The most exciting thing about this new framework is we'll be able to iterate on the interface much faster going forward, so if you have any suggestions or ideas for how you'd like to interact with your WordPress sites please let me know. Also the real-time updates are the coolest thing ever. :)

@photomatt surprised this only has 240 upvotes. This should be at like 5000.

@photomatt Did you end up using Go-lang?
Ross Currie@rossdcurrie · Founder, CrowdLoot
@datarade I think because it's an update to Wordpress.com and not Wordpress itself. @photomatt For those not familiar, what is the distinction between the two and what upcoming changes is this likely to herald to Wordpress itself?

Just when Medium.com was starting to look like the modern version of Wordpress, Matt and Automattic reminds you of why they power 25% of the internet. Keep being awesome!

so is the wordpress.org project also moving away from php to node.js as well?
Matt MullenwegMaker@photomatt · CEO, Automattic
@_jacksmith The core of WordPress is still in PHP, this is a new client.

@photomatt - if I understand correctly, the desktop app can be used for wordpress.org sites as well? But you need to install JetPack and therefore I assume have a wordpress.com account? Also will the tabbed editor (without requiring a page refresh) be coming to wordpress.org?
Simon OuderkirkMaker@saouderkirk · Team Lead, WordPress.com
@alangarrec You are correct, self hosted sites that have an active Jetpack plugin can be accessed via the desktop app. Activating the Jetpack plugin requires a WordPress.com account, so you assume correctly :) I believe the editor you're referring to is currently available for Jetpack-connected sites via the WordPress.com interface, and also through the new desktop app.

@saouderkirk Thanks Simon. This is a really big update, and the desktop app alone will save so much time. I'm looking forward to testing this out 😊

@alangarrec You're right, it is big! Thanks for the kind words!
