I hear a ton of people talking about Drupal and when there is a change, everything is a pain to upgrade. Anyone here using it by chance who could voice their thoughts on it?

Been using vBulletin for the longest time now, it's a very solid piece of software and would recommend them over the rest.

phpbb3 and smf are good free ones.

IPB is, I think, a little more confusing to use, I'd go wth vBulleting for anything, it's easy to use and easy to customize.

phpbb2 has quite a history of security vulnerabilities due to the fact that it was poorly coded, phpbb3 looks a bit better (code wise) still it's not as trustworthy as vBulletin and IPB. Recently SMF had a sudden outbreak of security vulnerabilities, so my advice is to go with a paid commercial product if you're serious about your forum.

Vbulletin is the best forum software, but if you need something free use PHPbb.

A few years back my favorite was Invision, but that is no longer free and I have not used it since the free version was around.

I'd have to say the "standard" for open-source forums is PHPBB and it does a pretty good job. However, vBulletin seems to be the best when it comes to large scale communities, although its not a freebie.

PhpBB is always in my top list second is smf but this days the smf is not having enough functions and the installation of mod functions required skill.

SMF is hacked by the hackers several times when i used but phpbbis safe in this and i prefer phpbb

PhpBB and then smf forum will be the best choice than other forum softwares, the recent version of smf is some what unstable try the older version, it have lot of mod functions.
