Yeah I'm really comfortable with what I'm seeing. I didn't have to go through a learning process to figure out where things were, which is what has always been a problem with vBulletin and Invision Power Board, as well as several other forum software. I don't see too many people posting, "How do I do this?" or "Where is this feature?". It's all laid out nicely, give or take a few minor things but that's what comes with an alpha.I'm convinced it will not, Kier will not sell out his baby.
Asa side note, the more I browse the forums, the more comfortable I feel with the product. It will be a great asset for my new sites I plan to develop with Xen.
