    Really a matter of personal preference. Lots of them are good. Some people like some and not others, but from where I sit, there's quite a few good free ones.

    vbulletin probably has the largest feature set, from the admin POV, but from the user POV I'm not sure.

    Yep $160 for a full license, http://www.vbulletin.com/order/
    However there are still many others out there that are pretty competitive on features and are freely available.

    Yes, phpbb is great. I made a whole website off of it. Unfortunetly I had a HD crash a while ago.

    I didn't have many members. The website was cool, I wasn't. That's just the way it goes. :P But, yes. *clears throat* PHPBB is good. Setup is a little complicated and if you screw it up you have to go into your MySQL database and fix it. :P

    Voy isn't bad for message boards (If it's still around). I used to use InsideTheWeb, but that's been defunct for years.

    I have been using phpBB3 for as long as it has been out. Before I did not like phpBB2 however this new version is awesome. It brings it right up to par with the other systems. I like it better than some of the paid scripts because of its large base community.
