This user has been denied support.I think everyone is tripping on his view about html over xhtml. Seems absurd but otherwise some good insight. Maybe he doesn't understand what each really is. Not sure.
To answer OP.
I prefer Mybb after reviewing and using several different softwares. And not just in test environments either..I am talking sites with 10k+ members and over 100k posts. I had a mybb site that was 500k posts that was previously VB and phpbb before that. Mybb was by far the easiest for me to manage, upgrade, and overall enjoy. phpbb was a nightmare and I thought switching to VB would fix that...it really didn't. VB was just as problematic to upgrade, alter layout, and add modifications. Mybb has for me excelled in the areas I require. I need extensibility and easy maintenance. When I upgrade the last thing I need is to go around all my forums and fix plugins or redo my custom layout changes. Mybb has done a great job at ensuring that plugins operate independently of the core system with it's plugins system.
