Being inquisitive always tends to spark spiralling conversations! I think we've had some good input in this thread, and I feel it's no surprise that they both have their advantages and disadvantages.
To exemplify, I don't particularly like the way vBulletin is coded, but because its open-source I trust its security - although I don't trust the security of the third party
(aptly named), but whenever a security hole is found within vBulletin, it gets patched very promptly. It's a hell of a lot cheaper of an option than coding a forum package from scratch - although we may well do eventually, when the time's right!
The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never be quite the same as the man who went out.
