I'm just wondering what solutions people have implemented for discussion forums in SharePoint 2010.

Do you mostly opt to use the out-of-the-box discussion lists and web parts?

Are there alternative web parts that you have used?

Have you gone with a completely different solution for featuring discussions?

I've gone with standard lists and web parts for almost everything. Having no training for Sharepoint and no test site to play around with and destroy, I can't really experiment.
I've seen a few enterprise implementations of Sharepoint though, but I'm yet to see one that is accepted as the standard for document repositories, discussions, calendars, or anything else. I guess the big question I have is what discussion board can be implemented that people want to use.
