Hi Nuno,
Thanks for the answer.

I understand this approach, but I think would be great to have something
for a quick start, specially for non-designers people, exactly like
Bootstrap does.
You still can do anything with HTML/CSS, but Bootstrap make it easier to
have something done if you are not strong on design.
