Forum's Software

Hello Forum Admins,

I only registered yesterday here.
So bear with me if my question may sound silly.
I would like to know what the name is of this forum's software that you are using.
It seems to be in widespread use because I have come across it in quite a few forums I believe.
Only the skins seem to vary a little but the basic functionality (to the user) is more or less the same across them all.

Regards
Ralph

Hello Demz,

thank you for feeding my curiosity.

What bemuses me is that this doesn't seem to be free software.
Isn't that a strange choice then for a forum site of an OpenSource project?

Fedoraforum was founded in 2004, Vbulletin was the best board around at the time.

Guys, the real truth is that FedoraForum.org is the property of Ewdison Then, it's founder. He's got a ton of other business and personal interests going on and ..... is using a Mac these days. As such, though we may think other options are a good fit, the ultimate decisions are up to Ewdi. vBulletin works, Ewdi's got control, is a very busy guy.... don't look for anything to change.
