just out of curiosity, is anyone here using tikiwiki?

I believe that's what we're using at work.  I've played with it a little
(adding/editing content), and it seemed pretty good.

I also recently installed MediaWiki (which is what Wikipedia, et al, use),
and it was a surprisingly simple install.  I'm also pretty familiar with
the interface from editing Wikipedia articles, which is part of the
reason I went with it.

I am preparing to add wiki capability to a political reform web site (Linux / Apache / MySQL / PHP).
I have found comparison lists ( e.g. http://www.wikimatrix.org/ and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_wiki_software), but beyond software requirements / compatibility it is hard to know what features really matter day to day. For example, is a small footprint / fast execution time more important than features beyond simple editing? There is no paucity of opinions out there, but I value the views of this group above others. Anyone with insights in how you chose (actually not theoretically) one Wiki over another would be much appreciated, particularly if you wish you had done something differently for some reason. Thanks.

The number one thing I take into account is ease of use for the end user. Anything that requires structured text is automatically out of the reach for not so tech oriented people (general workforce). Someone recommended that MoinMoin had a rather easy editing system but I haven't had a chance to look yet.

Better yet, go to the Kupu(WYSIWYG editor) website and see which wiki servers it's known to work with. http://www.oscom.org/matrix/index.html
