Quoting Matt Mullenweg <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
I noticed today that, in terms of layout, everything we have on the
themes page is almost exactly the same. Any suggestions for really
excellent 3-column or other non-menu-on-right themes?
Mike little has had his 3-column, light-weight layout for quite some time.
Thousands of people showed interest in it and he was even offered money
it to Blogger.
