IMHO MediaWiki is the best software for wikis, is the one more documented,
more used and with more extensions; but in the end is a matter of what do
you want to do and how much magic you want to have in your wiki :D

I think that if all you want is a website where everyone or just a few could
edit, ANY wiki would do the job, but in the moment that you want a little
more specific stuff, MW is the one that have done better results with me,
specially for the extensions, there are A LOT of things you can do with
them. For instance, now I'm doing some semantic stuff (listing pages and
properties dinamically, withouth hard-coding it, with beautiful code)

The downside of choosing wikis is that when you decided one, you should
stick on it because the wiki syntax is different among them.
