help choosing Forum and Gallery software
well i'm looking for some software that i can use to put a Forum on my site.
i want to stay away from PHP BB and vBulletin, all those big types of forums. and i need something that is free, or costs very little.
i've come accross Vanilla, it's OpenSource, Binary Bonsai has started using this, that's the first time i saw it. i like the look of it, it's simple, not clunky. that's the kind of thing i'm looking for.
i don't suppose there's any kind of forum that supports AJAX posting? now that would just be too cool. i guess Vanilla could be modded to support this...
also, i'm wondering what Gallery software people would recommend? right now i'm using Gallery2 and the WPG2 plugin to embed the gallery in WordPress. WordPress 2 is having some issues with the WPG2 plugin (or i should say that WPG2 is having issues with WP2) but that's only a matter of time before it's fixed. but i still wanted to see what people would recommend as a solution for having an embedded gallery in a WordPress site.
i hope people can help me out with some suggestions on simple, uncluttered forum and gallery software.

Check out http://www.opensourcecms.com/. It's a site that demos many of the open source content management systems, forums, image galleries, etc.
I have used Gallery and Coppermine for image galleries.
For forums, I've tried phpBB and SMF. phpBB frequently has security problems, but I like its ability to be customized.

punBB is a very good lightweight piece of forum software. I've used it for a site or two in my day and it serves it's purpose. There are a lot of additional plugins you can use to add just about any feature you could think of, although I don't know if AJAX commenting is supported.
