I'm curious about what portion of corporate and governmental wikis actually
run MediaWiki: Virtually all mainstream news articles seem to talk about
"wiki" in the abstract, rather than naming the actual software used (and
when they do, they often make statements that are misleading,
overgeneralizing, or just wrong [e.g., <
http://www.gcn.com/print/25_25/41674-1.html>, regarding the generalizations
about CamelCase in wiki software]).

I know there are varying numbers on the "market penetration" of different
wiki software, but what data is available on the _internal_ use of such
software (if only for determining whether MediaWiki is what companies jump
right to, or whether they tend to opt for commercial software)?
