Seem pretty kewl. My question is why even the java sites use PHPBB, does JavaBB suck, i see there it's only up to version 0.7.1 while PHPBB is at 2.0.17. I'm sure that it's not the same versioning sistem, but i just wonder, why i have seen so few sites using JavaBB, even Java related sites even implement their own forum, or use PhpBB.

They all seem pretty "kewl" until you actually start working with them. That's why this site is still using ubb.

I might give it a once-over if I get some time. Though I must admit I'm somewhat skeptical about their use of something other than JSP for their UI. Looks like they're using Velocity(?), which I understand is a good package, but I really don't see a need to learn/use yet another proprietary templating technology.
I agree. Here's the link:
