Tonight at TheAdminZone i heard the something about myBB. TAZ is vBulletin territory, so they're saying myBB is a watered down attempt to copy vBulletin. I can't see how however, as the two look and feel completely different to me.

I agree. Mybb is a simplified version of vBulletin. And for someone like me who like things simple, and vBulletin too time consuming with all of its bells and whistles, I prefer myBB as well.

Jforum is definitely not in the same class as myBB or phpBB from the point of view of a buggy installer. It also doesn't have a very active community forum like myBB, nor much in documentation. Can't see why any one would want to go for Jforum when myBB or phpBB are available

Thanks for the feedback Sarji. I must say I like myBB myself. Although in the beginning, after moving from phpBB, I really missed phpBB. I like the way the forum posts are organized. Took me a while to get used to myBB. Wonder what it would be like to move back to phpBB. Think I should create a sandbox phpBB Forum and see what the latest version looks like these days.

Haven't heard of this software either. I personally like vBulletin. Maybe because I'm used to it.
