Quick link: if you’re looking for a Wiki but having trouble choosing on of many Wiki engines, have a look at WikiMatrix.

It seems to have spun out of this Dokuwiki page and provides (primarily) functional comparison of different wiki engines (which is interesting in itself that Wiki software has become so well defined).

Opinion: although it’s a better place to start comparing wiki’s than anything else I’ve seen, to me what’s missing is things like “ease of maintenance”, “performance”, “scales to X pages / hits (link to real site)”, “actively developed / maintained”, “mean time to fix bugs / security issues” etc. But still a good start.
