What do you guys think, is the responsive theme that is now included with 1.9 worth a look at all? I realize it is more basic than lets say Ultimo, but do you think over time more extension may embrace it to make it more useful?

You have to start with a plan to know what you will be deviating from.

Hey Richard

We actually played with an install of Magento 1.9 to see what it looked like and how it handled.

To be honest I was pleasantly surprised with the responsive website and how it handled. I think there is a degree of horses for courses here. For some the basic Magento website will be enough to get people started and offer some basic customisation. However for those businesses that want a lot more freedom of customisation without getting too codey, then themes like Ultimo will always have their place in the market.

In short, its a step in the right direction for Magento and a great stepping stone
