As a user, I've joined three or four BBs hosted with vbulletin, and one 
with phpBB. I'd have to say the former is much nicer to use. It's 
drawback is it costs money.

I thought fedoraforums was using vbulletin (it might have been), now 
it's using vBadvanced which, at first glance, looks pretty similar, and 
there is a free version.
