Coen Jacobs posted about a couple of examples where theme authors were bundling commercial plugins into their commercial themes. This is incredibly dumb, which Coen gives good reasons as to why.

Purchasers, please do not be fooled by these catch-all themes. In the long run, they are a very bad idea.

The First WordSesh was a huge success and we are crazy enough to do it again. We’re currently pulling ourselves together and have begun planning the next event. We hope to have firm dates and additional details for you as soon as possible. Are you ready for more sleepless hours of incredibly awesome and free WordPress presentations?
