    Now that’s a lovely little extra to find in my stocking on Christmas Eve! Had it been distributed as true GPL I would have suggested that you make aware of it.

    In discussing feature considerations for 2.8, Jane indicated one feature they are thinking of is a new theme to ship with the core release set. It would be both an alternative to Kubrick and one for people who are beginning to look to customize WordPress A “sandbox” of sorts. Were this GPL it would be a great fit for those and a link in the admin area for .com and .org users would be worth far more visibility over the long-term I imagine.

    Just a thought. Merry Christmas!

    I’m all for Christmas goodness and freebies guys, but this theme has drawn a lot of inspiration from our very own Fresh News ( theme. Don’t you think?

    Where’s the Chanukah theme????

    As a designer in television, I can say that we are not amused by your shenanigans….

    Actually, working on Xmas at 5am on the news does not amuse us either.

  24. 24

    Yayyy…..Thanks alot !

  25. 25

    @adii You could make that case. You could also make the case that both borrow a lot of style / inspiration from the tuts grouping of Envato sites too.

    I’m starting to see why Matt feels the way he doesn about GPL as the derivitive work aspect could apply greatly in these cases. It need not result in legal or social upheval. Merely give credit where credit is due or fork for yourself if you are so inclined :)

    Nice theme!~

    Thanks everyone for all of your comments. After getting number of requests from you guys we decided to release v1.1 soon enough with complete template PSD source file so you also can able to edit this theme for your own use without the Christmas mood.

    That´s a great Christmas gift indeed – it´s cute with the Christmas stuff and without it´s a clean and bright theme and could be used for everything. Many thanks for sharing that, happy holidays and greetings from Austria!
