PGP’s Longevity

I recently came across an article on Mastodon regarding the state of PGP/GPG.

It lists out some really compelling reasons why PGP shouldn’t be used as well as providing alternatives. Many of these tools are easier to use than GPG/PGP and are, frankly, more popular. Thinking about this, it had been absolutely forever since I had actually used my GPG key for anything other than signing my git commits. While I guess that is still a good use for it, I may not bother anymore. Are we in a post-GPG encryption era?
