It's just too hard to start playing with concrete5 when you visit concrete5.org.

We're launching this new SimpleSite hosting as a way to provide instant demos of the latest stable version. If people want to keep them and host as is for $15/mo we're happy to support that. If they want to upgrade to a standalone concrete5 install, or graduate away to a budget host, we're happy to make that happen as well.

Here's some guidelines for what we're needing out of themes that might be included.
