    YaBBSE is a bit better in my opinion compared to PHPBB. It's easy to use, lots of features, good themeing support. It's nice. I am totally unaware of the Invisionboard except it looks almost exactly like YaBBSE.

    phpBB is my favorite and also the first I've worked with. I've setup 4 or 5 for other people, and I find the source to be much friendlier than Invision. Most people that I've helped with forum stuff want to use an invision board because the themes are shinier, but I believe that phpBB is the best.

    I like YaBBSE and once was really fed up with phpBB and started to write a conversion script to move phpBB posts to YaBBSE, then phpBB2 came out and I was w0wed. I don't like the way it does templates though, i mean it's good for adding new themes, but it's bad for adding new features cause you gotta add to every theme (if the feature includes a user-interface side)
