    MacRumors uses -- from what I understand -- a customized version of vBulletin Version 3.6.2.

    I don't know what you mean by "store," but I've found reasonable success using the freeware version of MovableType to run a database-driven content site that utilizes CSS.

    vBulletin is correct, at least for the forum software... But does vBulletin also do all the stories and CMS?

    For an open-source php-MySQL CMS capable of doing full-blown store and complete configuration, you might want to look at Drupal. (www.drupal.org)

    Like everyone has said, the forums are powered by vBulletin (you can see a message at the bottom). As for the actual MacRumors site, I'm not sure, but my guess would be Slashcode. (Slashcode is the publicly released code for the CMS Slashdot uses.) I'm just going off of the design/layout here - I don't know if that's what it really is.
