What year and month was that from? I've been here longer than most and that color layout seems familiar. If it was before November 2004 than I was here for that.

Hah yeah those colors were priceless! They were actually the colors on the ubuntu website back in the beginning. I couldn't find a snapshot that worked of ubuntulinux.org (was the main site) that showed it though :(

Heh...just looking at the wayback machines snapshots.
It's interesting because you mentioned that the forums ran phpbb to begin with, but a snapshot from 2004 here (06/11/2004):
http://web.archive.org/web/20041106020021/http://www.ubuntuforums.org/

shows that vbulletin is already in use. I would have been interested to see a snapshot with phpbb.
