I don’t see anything that would make this template special or primarily suitable for tech-savvy people, or even specific to HTML 5. This is a plain ol’ two column template that could as well be HTML 4. The only thing that makes it “responsive” to different screen resolutions is the CSS media queries which is CSS 3, but that has nothing to do with HTML 5. The template has bloated and unnecessary code, however, the only purpose of which is to emulate the few trivial HTML 5 elements there are in older browsers that don’t support them natively.
Go ahead and use it, if you like. It certainly wouldn’t be the end of the world. But it’s not a masterpiece of engineering in my opinion. There is nothing that couldn’t be done with current standards, in terms of looks.
