Good free web template for software collection?

Anyone know of any good free website templates for a site that will have several applications for sale?  One that looks bright and inviting preferably, and easy to edit (probably with a plain text editor).  Thanks!

To be more specific: I'm wanting the home/landing page to have a list-type view of all my products, which the user then clicks an item to go to a page specific to that.

No Flash or other multimedia, as it has to look good on iPhones as well as desktop PCs.

Have you tried themeforest and other such sites?

Had a look but they all are too complicated or flashy.  Just looking for something simpler.

Most themes on themeforest are responsive.
Even though they appear flashy they have the ability to auto change according to the device used.

I suggest you go for a cms like WordPress . Most wordpress themes are responsive.

Take a look at Bootstrap. There are both free and cheap templates available (search: "bootstrap themes"). No matter what template you get, it's likely that you will need to dig into it a bit, strip out the unnecessary stuff, and modify it to your needs.

See wrapbootstrap.com (paid but cheap) and the associated free site
