    go for phpbb its free and u have the best demo this forum itself
    invision is not free unless you sign up at thier free site

    Invision Power Board is free to use, one only needs to sign-up in order to download it from their server. The paid version comes with tech support and copyright removal.

    My choice is obviously IPB because of the advanced features it offers, and they are currently unmatched by any other free bulletin board system.

    Having said that, if one wants a no frills, functional board then phpBB is a good choice.

    Thanks for the info guys, so now it's phpBB vs. Invision Power Board as far as "free" is concerned.
