    My suggestions would be either:
    DokuWiki http://wiki.splitbrain.org/wiki:dokuwiki
    or
    MediaWiki http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki

    I use both and like them both for different reasons.

    I like MediaWiki as well. There’s a lot of info about it floating out there because it’s so popular and almost everyone has used Wikipedia so they’re already at least passingly familiar with it.

    I would NOT use Sharepoint. We use its wiki internally and it’s just annoying. It has a clunky interface, no way (that I can find) of diffing changes, the RSS only shows you new articles and not changes.

    Thanks guys, I was leaning toward MediaWiki, and I think you guys have confirmed that choice for me!

    I used the new version of SharePoint to explore wikis and how they could perhaps be used to track product development projects.
