With so many options out there, it's easy to say that whether you pick free or premium software for your website, it won't be a bad decision if the software fits the needs of your site. But do you prefer to go for premium software? Or do you try to stick to free software?

This is a good thread. I actually prefer premium software but if I'm low on money and wanted to start a new project, myBB honestly isn't half that bad. Considering you can transfer everything on the forum to Xenforo 2 later.

If I know a site will be successful I like to use paid software. Mainly being Xenforo and Sngine. :)

It depends on the type of site I want to run, and the available addons and extras that I can add to it, to make the site more useful over a clean install. I prefer Premium Softwares, but getting addons for them can be a pain in the wallet.

I go with paid software almost exclusively. I know what you mean about plugins tho. Typically, my members donate to pay for extra stuff,

It really depends on the software. The price tag doesn't always mean better quality - for example, WordPress is free or you could opt for a Premium Version of Wix? WP would be a better solution as you have much more control than the premium version of Wix.
