    I've playing around with phpBB, IPB and just recently purchased vB. Out of the box, phpBB is getting dated. To get it to have features that are equivalent of other boards (IPB, vB, SMF etc.) you'll have to install somewhere between 20 - 30 Mods. This gets worse when you try to upgrade to a newer version (once every two months on average).

    IPB used to be free, when they decided to go commercial, they managed to pi$$ lots of people up. The current, stable version, 2.0.4 is comparable to vB 3.0.8 (I haven't played much with IPB to know the differences).

    vB has a much longer history than IPB or phpBB. Being commercial from the beginning, vB focused on features, reliablity, surity, scalablitity, support etc. That's why it's very rare to see/hear a vB forum getting hacked. The product's simply more matured. It's much harder to obtain the source codes, it contributes really well.

    To the way I see it, vB is like Mercedez while IPB's more like BMW. phpBB is, well, your good old reliable Honda (the most stolen cars in the world).

    I have to confess, when I sent vBulletin 160 for my vB license, I didn't feel very well (it's not like everyone has that amount to throw around). But the more I get to know vB, the more I believe my money is well spent. I like vB more than my friend's IPB (duh!).

    Not true Fire. There are very few people who can write objectively.

    Many people tend to stick with what they know. Even if, hypothetically speaking, IPB support was bad, a client would tend to still keep his loyalty to the product without knowing that there are better – not always the case, but in these situations it is what usually happens.

    I have licenses with almost every software made to date that may be available for purchase online but I always pick some software as personal choices over competitors.

    weird... i have not yet came acroos any thread on entire internet (except a couple of competitors forums).. speaking negative about vbulletin.
    But as mentioned by Zach, trails always speak negative..

    Vbulletin Forums (the software script) and Vbulletin Staff (Developers, Technical and Sales) has always proved best for us and rest of VB Community

    Warm Regards,

    we all know he meant IPB.

    So the question is if there is like a table with 3 columns, one for name, one for VB and one for IPB.

    That would actually be kinda fun to see!!!!

    Here's a thought; you shared an opinion. I'm sure some people think vBulletin has crappy support, just like others think IPB, phpBB, etc. has crappy support. It's all relative.

    There are alot of "others" that I can think of off the top of my head. I do not know of any table that has listed the majority or them side by side with an option list. Of course this would be really be useless since many of the softare packages get updated with new features in a relaitivly short period of time.

    IMOP each one has there pluses and minuses. It all comes down to personal prefrence and what your actual needs are/will be.
