    Thanks for linking to a couple of my themes. The link for the Modicus theme is http://www.upstartblogger.com/wordpress-theme-upstart-blogger-modicus – the link you have at the moment goes to an out of date page at themes.wordpress.net. I’ve got some more minimalist themes coming out very soon, starting with a very clean one column design that I think you’ll enjoy.

    What a fantastic compilation of themes! I’ve seen many of these before (I’m using my own modified version of the third theme on the list for my own site), but many are designs that are brand new to me. What a great resource!

    Hmm, I looked at Resurrection, it doesn’t seem to be compatible with WP 2.3.2. It doesn’t have widgetized sidebars, and requires the UTW plugin (doesn’t work in the latest WP since tags are now supported). Too bad, it is a nice dark theme otherwise.
    Some of the rest, though, wow. Great collection for a theme addict like me. Thanks!

    I think these are all great themes.

    I’ve never used wordpress or any other blogging system so I may be out of my element.

    However, this is a web design blog. Are you posting these themes suggesting that they be used or as inspiration?

    I’ve always been a Smashing reader and I plan to continue to be.

    I just don’t understand the point of having post and post of free and “Amazing”, “Beautiful”, “Fresh and Clean” wordpress themes.
