Yeah I personally don’t see what all the fuss is about on the dropdowns. I think dropdowns are actually pretty cool all the way down to mobile. Just look at how the dropdown menus fold up in Jump Start’s default theme. I think having them in Bootstrap is making things more complicated for other aspects of the framework and it will be easier to just take them out, and they’re just justifying that.
Just remember that you don’t need to depend on Bootstrap for everything. There will always be ways to accomplish just about everything.
