‘Bueno’ even appears to be free…but is quite not as polished as ‘Blog-ee’ which is available for nothing from Marcus N. (eetemplates.com)

OK, OK, ‘Bueno’ is EE 2.0 ready…but EE 1.6.8 is far from being obsolete regarding usability and stability, so ‘Blog-ee’  (or the other themes from Marcus which are available for a few bucks) is a very good start pending the arrival of EE 2.1.

Another personal thought : these themes are very very “WordPress-like” (you know, this “widget” stuff…) and that isn’t a good showcase of EE capabilities.

Interesting addition to the EE community anyway.

Emmanuel; thanks for your input - what I want to emphazie and something we’ve obviously not done a good enough job on promoting is this; these are not merely just themes, they are developer packages; starting points for awesome websites built on EE. They contain a bunch of custom written modules to help your client customize their website after you’ve delivered it. And a control panel. I’ll explain more about it later when I get a minute..

Yes, and you can even get a (big) flavor of EE 2.0 CP theme in EE 1.6 thanks to Dion.nu.  Been using this theme for weeks and it is flawless.

As mentioned Bueno is free download, the cost is for support… hmmm sounds familiar. Support is a good thing.
