Site generators of this type form a happy medium between the inefficiency of writing HTML from scratch (after all, most boils down to templates filled with content) and the inefficiency of regenerating static content upon every request (as WP and Drupal are prone to do).

If there's no dynamic stuff on your site, why pull everything from a database? And if you save time by using templates, why roll your own HTML?

but most of the best static sites so far have a different view.. so, to make a different view, we cant use a template. but i would be interested in leaning these things. i'm on a windows. can suggestion how to install and get started with octopress(seems to be the best)?
