Here are a few reasons that spring to my mind:

  • PHP/MySQL/Apache based, so will run of virtually any web server, VPS or shared hosting.
  • Now fully open source and actively developed.
  • Single sign on to integrate with an existing member database (e.g. a forum).
  • You can change as much or as little as you like with CSS themes and advanced themes.
  • Fine-grained control with advanced themes, so you can change a few bits of code or completely move things around.
  • Ability to add custom pages (e.g. for FAQs/Rules)
  • Good permissions control (e.g. who can ask/answer questions, edit and delete).
  • Plugins! You can add different login/editor/page plugins, though there are not a huge number developed yet.
