In your (everyone who reads this) opinion, what is the best free open-
source software that you have seen, used, delved into?

Most customizable?

Most versatile?

Your input and feedback si greatly appreciated!

i have used phpBB before (downloaded it from SourceForge.net). While it 
was "feature rich" it was not as customizeable as I had hoped.  That is, I 
wanted the UI to be very specific, and integrated in my site if possible.  
The only customizing you could do was a logo up top, and the CSS that 
defined the way the tables looked.

Other than that, though, it was feature rich and relatively user friendly 
even for start up admins!  I would recommend it if you are looking for a 
fast, feature rich, but relatively standard looking bulliten board.

If you want to get fancy, do what I did and make your own.

good luck,
