Minimum page is brought to you by Peter Wilson and Josh Kinal at Soupgiant, we blog at Big Red Tin or you can follow Peter and Josh on Twitter.
A LESS version is in the process of being built, including a number of mixins for use once it is time to build your site. A base will continue to be available as a normal CSS file.
You can see the progress on the less-version branch.
