WordPress.com now offering the Retro Mac theme

The folks at WordPress.com were inspired by Boing Boing’s use of the Retro Mac, and have now made it available to all WordPress.com users. Very cool.

Matt Mullenweg says:

It’s impossible to overstate the influence of Steve Jobs on technologists, particularly his passion for beautiful, usable products. We work harder and have higher standards because of the bar set by Apple’s experiences, and I don’t know what WordPress would look like today if not for the inspiration he gave all of us. As the shock at his premature loss has given way to a celebration of his life it’s been amazing to read all of the personal anecdotes of those lucky enough to have known him.

Check out my small collection of Steve Jobs tributes from the web, including the Boing Boing homage.
