People often say that phpBB or SMF are the best free alternative to vBulletin
this question is for all forum owners,
I want to start a forum but don't have enough money to spend on vBulletin,
so what do you think is the best alternative to vBulletin
note to Mod : please shift this to correct forum if this is wrong place to ask this question.

But I would recommend to go for Vbulletin, mine was phpbb and convert to VB.
I would suggest you some option there are some forums where some webmasters are selling VB license you may try that for cheaper rate.
so it will be a never ending trail of expenses if we look at vB.
i am a coder and my self can tweak some stuff here and their, so not afraid to get my hands dirty on it.
that's the whole point of finding out what others consider as best alternative so that i can start spending my efforts it one single direction.
Ohk so lets check that out too. Please check i have sent you PM for the same.
in the mean time i was looking in google and found my way back to netbuilders on this thread
did any buddy has to add any thing to it.
Note : i get a bit money saver when i have to purchase a software which cost's in 3 figures so will still prefer to go by a free alternative.
in the mean time http://www.forummatrix.org/compare/MyBB+vBulletin doesn't make MyBB look that bad compared to vBulletin.
there is a project called litebulletin. you can try that. its pretty cool and looks almost vb.
search on google..
