  1. Title is kind of misleading since I am really asking about the difference between Thematic and a Parent theme...I am interested in selling themes and love the fact that Thematic is GPL (I will always release free ones because of this since I strongly believe in stuff being open source)..but was in the middle of working on my child theme when I started googling stuff and saw that true wp devs who sell themes sell them as parent themes. So in short, how on earth could you make a parent theme with Thematic (isn't Thematic itself a parent theme as well as a framework)?

  3. any theme can be used as a parent theme, so yes, thematic is a great parent theme. you can sell premium child themes, but there is a bit of a hurdle to clear in getting people to understand what a child theme is AND it's benefits.
