I personally love the forums module that comes with drupal and the flexibility that comes with being able to treat a forum as a just another node. I don't understand the need to integrate other forums, honestly.
From what I've read at Drupal.org, the forum node is verrrrrrrry server intensive. I don't know anything more about the drupal forums, but I 'do' know vB, and I like it a LOT. Rather than learning another board, I prefer to stick with what I know.

It's slick, but I don't really need a 'slick' board for my purposes. I need vB.
