    I wouldn't say 'powerfullest'.

    It's supposed to be a lightweight solution, IIRC.

    Well if you check your topic poll, phpbb won by a long shot.
    PHPbb has a better community at their site so when you have a problem you can always contact them their. SMF's forums usually take me 1~2 weeks for my problem to get restored, which isn't good if you want your site to grow into a large scale site.

    I just reccomend phpBB, because of professionalism type of BB (it's pretty good, like a free vbulletin) because SMF is just really simplistic, and very restricted in customization.

    I'm using phpbb3, along with Profile Manager (free). They can now be integrated. To be honest, I have not tried any other, but I've gone to many of the other's sites and was more impressed with phpbb.
