Also, and I hate to say this, comparing page load times for a static site on the one hand and WordPress + a page caching plugin on the other makes little sense. In both cases, you’re loading static HTML.

@jan I think the point about that comparison is focused on the technical investment of the JAMstack in contrast to simply putting a cache in front of a stack that’s interacting with multiple other systems. Though this is obviously assuming response time is the only problem trying to be solved.
Personally, the JAMstack is fun to use but I’ve been hesitant to use it for a production site.
