    Great interview!

    Man, I'm an idiot. I thought punbb was some fork of phpbb all this time. D'oh!!!!

    1.3 looks promising and its really interesting to hear that punbb uses strict xhtml and css. I don't think any other forum does. I'm curious to see if punbb uses as many tables as some of the other software too. /time to go download lol

    I actually though punBB was a port of phpBB as well, I guess I was wrong. I really like how it looks. I definetly think it has a lot of potentinal, especially for like an companies internal forum, because it isn't over fiiled with tons of features no one needs :).

    we use punBB on our private forums on big-boards.com, i never heared of it before then but even though we are using an old version, it still does everything that it needs to do & we need.

    also interresting to see that 2 big-boards are using punbb: http://rankings.big-boards.com/?filter=PunBB,all and notice how fast those sites load, many admins will be jealous!

    Good interview. I use PunBB on one forum I frequent and I like it. It's simple but very effective. I didn't realise it was using valid markup. Congrats on that alone!

    1.3 sounds very promising. So much so, that I think I'll start paying more attention to the releases.

    UseBB, which is also mentioned, does so.

    Kudos for that. Too many websites and developers continue to take the usability of their sites/software for granted. It's amazing and very sad how many are inaccessible to those with disabilities. And let's not even talk about the markup of many. *shudder*

    But on the Big Boards site (http://www.big-boards.com/forum.php) it says TAZ hosts the Big-Boards admin forum, and TAZ uses vB. :suspect:

    We use punbb for the editors discussions. And we're quite happy with it I must say (of course being very few members we don't have huger requirements, still, it's a nice and simple piece of soft).

    Great interview, very interesting.

    Never heard of PunBB before though ;)

    Lots of useful things also, for example, I think I won't buy Peugeot now, though I was considering it, thanks for an advice :)
