Well, I think as it's been said, if you have your own software, you can do pretty much anything with it.

As I've said over the years, GT has been building a toolbox, which allows them to build new products, and integrate changes more quickly.

With all the tools, they can create an entire site/community program which is what I've been cheering for from the begining :)

Now, with w3t being sold to UBB, it makes even more sense for GT to have their own forum, without having to deal with 3rd parties.

Links/Database, Web Mail, Forum, and more can be integrated using the same "core" features, the same template tags, the same logic, the same developers. If you used w3t, their "template" system was very weak, and complicated. Upgrades were very, very hard. THe more you customized, the harder it was.

Links SQL is really easy to upgrade (as we have all seen -- sure, some problems, but in general, all mods/features upgrade with no code editing).

Integrating the products into a 'suite' of products sharing a central kernal, and user database, makes things easier from a maintaining point of view.
