Gantry is a comprehensive set of building blocks to enable the rapid development and realization of a design into a flexible and powerful web platform
The WordPress accessibility mode for widgets is not supported in this framework. If you require keyboard access to work w/widgets, don't even waste your time w/this software. I find this very disappointing, as it seems to me it goes against everything that WordPress stands for in terms of equal access for all. Frankly, it's rather like saying everyone is welcome to use our software freely, except, of course, if you can't use the mouse effectively. How hard is it really to implement? WP has likely provided most if not all the code.
Gantry is a really powerful theme framework with the ability to build versatile page layouts using widget areas and overrides.
The framework is also highly extendable and adaptable for designers and developers.

Works great got the job done!
I highly recommend staying away from this framework and coding your themes and plugins by hand. Gantry/Rocketthemes adds ~1.5 seconds of server side loading time to every site I have tested with. The UI does not follow WordPress standards and creates overly complex methods of customization. There are many other plugins that can be strung together to create all the same functionality that Gantry has, without all the excess bloat.
Gantry doesn´t work correctly with multsite. I´ve seen, that this is an old problem, so I give one star, because the developers doesn´t care less this basic problem.
Awesome.. made life easier
I started using Gantry 2 years for developing Joomla themes and now the WordPress version of Gantry is equally impressive.
