Builder looks impressive and the pre-release price is super-reasonable compared to those other premium framework themes. Just one question...will Builder have a GPL license like your other themes?

Kirk, thanks for that ... I was hoping people would see the extreme value in the price.

Builder is GPL-licensed. :)

Thanks Cory, that's great to hear. That makes this even that much better of a deal. Those other frameworks expect developers to pay a per-site fee even after paying for the so-called developers license.

Well, we're hoping to build some great community around Builder .... being GPL has been a positive thing for us, but for customers, it's great, because it means more freedom. Freedom I hope is as valued and respected as what you've shared here as it comes with a cost. :)

Thanks!

I have a feeling that you have only scratched the surface of what can be done with builder.
As a Consultant who builds wordpress sites for clients, I would have been stupid not to get the pre release

I'm so excited.. I have 3 sites planned including a REDESIGN of my site that is currently in Flexx

Michael-
We love to hear that you are as excited as we are.  What I love about Builder is that it can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it.  It has been built for ease of use. You can get incredible functionality out of it, and never touch the code. But, if you are a rockstar developer who does know how to code, Chris has built in the ability for you to expand it to the ends of your imagination.  This is really a great tool that we are excited to bring to our customers.
Can't wait to see what you guys can do with this theme.
