Question Leaving the vB 4 software

So not sure about this Thread but thought i'd give it a go, I'm not here to bash vB 4 or vB 5 just wanted to share my thoughts.

So I've been using the vB software for many year now, started on vB 3 then went to vB4 and stuck with all the vB 4 problems until it settled down and got in a way stable.
Then came vB 5, and I shook my head once again.

I have learnt a lot with vB4 enjoy this place a lot, I never go to the .com site i like it here more.
I know my way around the software kind of well, now how to change codes, read codes, also I know a lot with the admin CP I actually find it very easy to use.

But I have had this itch for a while, the itch being to move to a new software, i think you can guess which software, the one which often gets spoke about, the Xen software.

I followed it from the start, all the stuff between vB and them, and was happy how it finally ended.

I have tested out the software, and as a member I find it nice, clean and easy to use, and fast too.
But the admin panel really is hard to get used to.
Apart from the Admin panel I am about ready for the move.
But I feel sad to leave vB after all these years.

I've made some good online friends over the years, also lost a few like Rob, aka Boofo.
Also there's nothing really wrong with my vB Forum, it's got a lot of mods and custom stuff on it, it's a little slow with the software but not a huge amount.
I know many have made the move, and also there have been some which have done both ways, moved then moved back, or just left Xen all together.

I have zero interest in the vB 5 software.
So what to do? I really don't know.

Guess i need to keep thinking and the pros and cons of it all, but as i said the only real con for me personally is the Admin CP for Xen software.

Anyway, I've put my thoughts out now, see if any replies come, no bashing or flaming guys, that will only get the Thread locked by Paul (just kidding Paul )

Well looks like there's not much interest here.

So anyway, today I bought my Xenforo Licence.
Felt great.

Busy setting things but but really enjoying it.
Kind of sad to say goodbye to vB after all these years.
But there you go.
It's been great on here, I wish everyone good luck with the future of vB.
Going to miss seeing Ozzy around, hoping one day he might pop in and say hi over on the Xenforo site.

I'll still pop by here as I have another vB licence which someone runs the Forum for me, so i'll be knocking around but not as much...

I just went through the fun process of acquiring someone else's license.

Sorry not possible as I had already bought it from someone else who was selling one.
So it can't be transferred again.

Congratulations on moving to xnfr, for the admincp you will find something very useful. and for me the style manager and style properties is somewhat near to perfect which vb never accomplished. I do both vbulletin and xnfr styles.
