I do that already in XenforoSeems like a lot of hype to me. The only one thing I saw there that I haven't seen before is the reply as a new topic, and that's something that wouldn't be too hard to build into existing forum software.
FYI: Xenforo has a live replies addon (by sonnb so it should be good).Lots of things..

DIscourse is the Ruby/Ember(JS) forum app. I like it, but, being a new product they just don't have the years of experience that KAM have when it comes to forum software. It's not just about the end user, it's about the needs of Administrators too - and I think it will take a while for Discourse to get that essential piece of the puzzle right. Of course they have other positives, mainly, huge support from some very good professional developers. It's going to be a very different type of forum - and right now, I don't think it is suitable for my established communities. New forums, I will definitely be trying it for a few new forums I have in mind, though.
