Hello,

I need a simple way to start WordPress themes for my clients, but it needs to be flexible and very customizable.

So I found this two foundations to start a WordPress theme:

http://underscores.me/ http://themble.com/bones/

Which one of them would you recommend to start with? Or if you know another one please let me know :)

In my opinion the second one (bones) is better and simple. The other one is just plain and don’t have much information.

Of course it is, there is no limit for it’s application, the only thing that is important is your knowledge.
