It's a common question here. See this FAQ.

It's not really accurate to say that the site was "developed" using CGI. It was more like "adopted". The UBB software (which uses Perl and CGI) was chosen to run the site; nobody here developed that - it was licensed (although a lot of changes have been made to it since then). If we were to switch to something else, it would most likely be Java-based, since that's our main area of expertise.
