    I like phpbb... but in honestly the only other one I've tried is an older version of vB lite.

    i've used ikonboard, and phpbb. i like phpbb better.
    maybe i'm biased though as i don't like perl

    but phpbb2 is gonna have lots of SWEET features. so, maybe you'll wanna check this out.

    yup i'm running phpBB2 beta at home and i think if they get all the features promised up by the release version it'd really rock!

    I like phpBB, but you have to put a lot of work into it.

    http://www.xmbforum.com is more of a ready made solution.

    And http://www.openbb.net , which is still in developing fase, might also prove to be quite a sweet bulletin board.
