[Melbourne-pm] Modern Forum software?

What are people using for forum software today?
It looks like most of the perl based ones are either 1) fast but have a dated interface or
2) are slow but look good.

I figure slashcode and its friends fit in with 1 and everything2 fits in catergory 2.

Is there something clean, lightweight and modern?

Also is there anything that doesn't require a SQL database?  If the
average post is about 500 characters and the minimum size for a
database is about 20 meg of memory, I figure you need about 40,000
messages before the database is faster than flat files.
