I want to take time to give this theme and it's author due credit, so you'll find this to not be a quick summary ...
I found this to be a terrific theme for me. The look of it appealed to me immediately -- I prefer the darker themes because in my opinion, they're easier to read for long periods of time. Also, it will become obvious to you that the author spends a great deal of time adding new features and improvements.
While for myself, I've lots of years in IT, I confess that previous to this I had not actually used WordPress before -- or blogged on another site either for that matter -- frankly, it was way too distracting while keeping shoestring networks together to find time to learn how blogging might benifit me.
Now with this particular theme, it appeared that I did have some initial trouble, however I later found that this was due to my own lack of understanding basic WordPress usage and I found out first hand that one simply cannot do without speaking at least a bit of blog-ease before deciding what's best as for a blogging platform or for a suitable theme; lest one ends up like myself, chasing one's tail for a bit until the obvious begins to kick in!
For me, this theme provides the user with more features than many of the themes that I've tried to use (yes, I did compare it to some other themes as well and I even tried other platforms besides WordPress too). Because it has so many features however, it occurs to me that it would be good for the novice WordPress user to learn about the basics of that software before jumping in setting up you're own site -- I say that about any WordPress theme actually, not just this one. In all, WorsPress outperforms them all in my opinion (take that for what it's worth).
All-in-all, it was an easy theme to install and use and the support is very good as well. Try it for yourself -- you're sure to like it!
