I actually really like TWiki. It's been very stable for us, and is super easy to use. Here are some benefits:
  • Uses rcs instead of a database in the backend, which simplifies administration and backups
  • Access control and permissions are embedded directly into wiki pages ("topics" in TWiki-speak) using the same markup
  • Namespaces via "Webs" help to organize content
  • Tons of features are shipped by default (e.g. email notifications, WYSIWYG editor, versioned attachments, very flexible access management) and tons more available as plugins (e.g. Topic tagging, collapsable tree-views showing the semantic relationship between topics)
  • Pretty by default, though this is very subjective
