    • Con: weak editor
    • further pros and cons to mediawiki
  • TWiki with extensions
  • WackoWiki
    • Pro: rich language, attachments, reasonable editor, versioning
    • Con: no locking, hard to embed images/objects, no integration with user-db, no editing of parts
  • wikiserver (managed box) -- based on Qwiki
    • email to the wiki
  • UseMod
  • MoinMoin
  • WikkaWiki (somehow related with WackoWicki)
