BlogStarter is an empty theme, used as a starting point for custom designs.
Version 2.0 has some great improvements, including compatibility up to WordPress 2.8.6, a cleaned up CSS system, and a re-organized functions.php.
Some new additions include: built in admin options areas to make adding custom theme options pages easy, custom functions to easily list latest tweets anywhere, add a fading slideshow gallery that reads off any folder of images, add a flash movie anywhere in the theme, and more.
This is not a ready-to-go theme, just a hollowed out framework for starting your custom theme. Probably not ideal for beginners...
