Well, my personal opinion as designer is, that it's better to go with
the fixed bento theme as default and provide the option to switch the

Why I vote for fixed bento? In the fluid version, the line-lenght can
easily get to long. And I'm pretty sure, that normal users [1] ayes
freakout on such long lines. So it's usability issue.

Hi Robert!

Why not get the best of both worlds? Go with the fluid layout, which is
better for people with smaller screens, preventing the horizontal
scroll, but have a max-width (defined in ems) to prevent having
extremely long lines?

Lovely skin btw.

Something else Frank Sundermeyer found is, that the fluid skin does
not compress the blank space on the left and right of the content area
when making the window smaller.
