I think simplemachines.org is the first. If I'm understanding you correctly.

Yeah, I think so, but all related by the software.

They all use the same forum hosting script (simplemachineforums).

I believe the actual maker of the SMF script is Here
SMF For Free just allow free hosting of the script on their servers, in exchange with google adverts being placed on the forum.

Its a great service and ad removal is ALOT cheaper than buying forum scripts
Vbulletin and IPB cost alot of money and require some experience to get up and running.

Then you have to add hosting costs ontop of any forum script costs!
SMF For Free is good for most new webmasters.

Feel free to pm me for a great FREE alternative to SMF For Free (Vbulletin and IPB hosting) :)

I've spent my good share of time in a vBulliten Admin panel. Very simple, reminded me a lot of this Admin Panel almost. Then again most Admins panels look almost the same...

I'm sure SMF For Free knows a lot more about Simple Machines Forum's than us.
Here's a Wiki on it --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_Machines_Forum
Rather short Wiki actually...

vbulletin admin panel is ok, IPB's is even easier.

the problems start when you want to add mods (conflicting updates) or edit the source files.
i have added mods in the past to both IPB and vbulletin that totally destroyed my forums.
thanx f*k for daily backups :)

weeeeelll, i have ripped Vbulletin, IPB and SMF to pieces rofl.

not that much between em, but i think IPB just about wins (seo booster, banned member/IP control, most vbulletin mods install by default) :)
