from technical features, operator maintenance, and usability
standpoints, moinmoin is probably the better wiki, while confluence
has the better integration to display e.g. microsoft powerpoint inside
the wiki. moinmoin is written in python, and confluence in java. this
makes non-java folks tend vs moinmoin, and java people vs confluence.
operating systems seem to lean vs moinmoin (debian, ubuntu, centos)
e.g.
