Anyone use Gantry?

Has anyone had any experience trying to use the Gantry framework, http://www.gantry-framework.org/?
Their examples look pretty slick and interesting but my only success has been in "breaking" two sites - one WordPress and one Joomla - lately. That seems to be a recent hobby of mine but I guess it's just a byproduct of being willing to try a lot of different things.
I wonder if anyone has any experience or knowledge of Gantry and if they thought it was worth the time invested in figuring out to how use it.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I've been working on Gantry and i can say that is amazing, but i prefer using some simpler frameworks such as Kickstart html. I have been using it with Joomla, it's really easy to use and friendly!.

I love the artwork for the site.

Will definitely check the site out. Looks as though the software is free as well.

Thanks for the lead on Kickstart. I'm going to be trying that for sure.

I also plan to keep working with Gantry, but considering I'm still working on getting up to speed with Joomla itself, I don't know how soon I'll be able to put together anything worth looking at. It's great fun though and even the simplest of web design successes can be very satisfying to me. I just always try to keep it simple and think about the best way to communicate the content.

At the risk of creating a low quality post, I'll say yeah, it looks pretty cool!

Btw using a frameworks is a little bit hard, for example using Twitter Bootstrap, because its hard to implement own CSS, while using Kickstart HTML is very easy.

If you are playing with Gantry, then making own modules will be simple and easy :) It's just like normal CSS panel.
