Smile XenForo - Has the vBulletin / IPB killer arrived ?

Hey,

I was wondering if any of you have tried out XenForo - The new forum software being developed by Kier Darby, the former lead developer of vBulletin.

Although the software is still in Alpha my first impression was that this can develop into a very polished and sophisticated forum software.

However I found the style to be a bit too minimalistic. I hope it will be changed significantly before launch.

I wonder if we will be getting to try out any beta to check it out.

What do you guys think. ?

I hope they have the backend sorted out as that's what determines if a product will live or die. The frontend can always change.

"early adopters sale as well" sound a bit like VB so if they've a similar price and the same licensing conditions - dunno if people will switch over.

Yes I wonder what the price will be...I dont think it will be as much as vB/IPB although its looking like it will be better than both in an unmodified state.

However I think the biggest strength of vB lies in vB.org. There are so many good mods available here for free. (and styles as well) that it becomes impossible to go over to any other software. (for now)

Looks like a cheap Vbulletin to me :X

and about the "Admin CP" who cares about the way it looks as long as it works there is no need for "fancy" panels

Meh just my option anyways

as for "vBulletin / IPB killer arrived ?" pfft vb is the best

Kier and Mike.. interesting. Looks like AVForums plans to adopt it when it's released.

To be honest, I'd rather move to something that has those two behind it.. than stay with IB (:

I had a look at that forum and it looks very nice. I liked what I saw.

Will it be free or paid?
