    For a simple and nice-to-handle forum with good features, for which one should i go? PunBB or PhpBB?

    Which is a good free forum host according to you people? Thinking of http://www.atfreeforum.com/

    i've tried both and i prefer punbb but punbb isn't part of the fantastico auto installer that you can get but yesterday i figured out how to install punbb on my own with the help of the forum of the webhost.
