Demand for Bootstrap Styles

Since I've created a style for vBulletin based on Bootstrap I'm wondering how high the demand is for such styles. Considering that going for the more flat approach, or metro if you will makes the style look less heavy and more user friendly.

Would you like to have a flat/modern, metro style?

Material design is big right now (i.e. Lolipop and other systems), so a flat more simplistic design is pretty in right now. I am sure there would be takers. I know ThemeForest has a good metro style out there already.

Bootstrap is mobile-friendly centric. Styles based on bootstrap are desperately needed for anyone who wants a true, responsive style for their forum. Embrace mobile or die.

You would have buyers lined up for a set of responsive vBulletin styles which utilize Bootstrap.

I'd pay for a style like the one your forum has - as long as it is bug free and works with some of the popular mods around.

I've been using the Metro theme that is over on themeforest and my users like it. With other major sites following the minimalist / simple style trend people seem to want the same thing on forums.

I made a bootstrap theme a week ago, works like a charm, but upon asking for reviews on it, I've received mixed verdicts.. some like the bootstrap theme, others think it's pointless.

You are right I converted my webmaster forum style into responsive design

Although I didn't use bootstrap but I found that vBulletin 4xx already has got a good style that near responsive, problem is you can need spend around 12 or 24 hours to convert it to responsive.
