The Whimsy Framework is a parent theme that includes everything you need in a theme, but without very much styling. Child themes work with their parent framework to provide pretty styles.

Nope! The Whimsy Framework is free to download and customize as you please via the official WordPress theme repository.

A "responsive layout" is built to work beautifully on any device, from the largest desktop monitor to the smallest phone screen without the need for multiple versions of the website.  

Whimsy is built on WordPress, the best CMS and blogging software on the internet. When you use WordPress, you're part of a community of over 60 million users including Beyoncé, Time Magazine, and CNN.

No, you have to have a self-hosted WordPress website to use Whimsy themes.

There are two different versions of WordPress: a hosted version (wordpress.COM) and a self-hosted version (wordpress.ORG).
