Which Wiki Engine to use?

Which Wiki Farm to use?

Personal choice

I use MediaWiki, which is a Wiki Engine with a preference close to Wikipedia. It is based on PHP and database software (e.g. MySQL and SQLite3). The database allows as many pages as you want (I heard another wiki engine MoinMoin uses text file and is okey for < 10K pages). It is full featured and has many extensions.
