    I recommend both for different purposes. To me, I find them #1 and #2 for best free options. What I would do is get a test copy of both, and install a few useful plugins/mods from both sides (I'd say SMF wins at ease of install). Play around with both, and see what you like, because MyBB and SMF might not be for everyone. Also, ask some sample support questions.

    I have to recommend MyBB. Was easier for me to use, and might be the same for you ^^;

    I would recommend MyBB. SMF is really easy to install modifications but MyBB has better themes!

    I used to prefer SMF but recently things just don't seem to be going too well for them. MyBB certainly does look and work fantastically well and really I would go for MyBB now.

    Yeah, it really is a shame one owner wanted it all. Oh well, let's wait and see how good Project Phoenix is (that's what the guys who left are working on).

    I prefer MyBB, it's that forum software I'm using right now and I think it's really good.
