Between the 2 main free ones which do you prefer?
I prefer PhpBB because I feel it has a lot more support when it comes to custom themes and more options around compared to MyBB. Even when I felt MyBB was super popular I never truly felt it was a competitor with the other forum software out there. What are your thoughts?

I like MyBb for its ease of use, especially in the ACP, however, I like phpbb because of the selection of themes and extensions they have.

I've only really used MyBB, although I like the fact that phpBB is responsive out of the box (which MyBB still isn't :( !)
