I'm not sure there's such a thing as a reliable survey. I know
Confluence is popular in the corporate world. MediaWiki's main
advantage is looking and working just like Wikipedia, and it's not too
painful to sysadmins, but doesn't come in a shiny fluffy package.
MoinMoin is for geeks, but I'm missing all its extra text formatting
options (particularly being able to use ` ` instead of <tt></tt> when
writing about command-line stuff). Does anyone know of evidence that
isn't just anecdotal?
