Favourite Forum Software?

I'm curious what yours is?

In a bit, I'll be getting some good webhosting with php, mysql and the bunch, and I'm just wondering what a good pick would be. Particularly something free.

My personal favourite so far is 'simple machines forums' (SMF,) but it doesn't seem to be available for download. What I'd prefer is something streamlined and clean, but feature rich and pleasing to the eye. What should I get?

Simple Machines is actually the next evolution of YaBBse, available at If you like the look and feel of SMF, you might give YaBBse a try.

Personally I've tried a few, and have stuck with YaBBse. There are other excellent forum packages available, and some do have features not planned in YaBB until the SMF release (phpBB comes to mind).

Edit: fixed link
