I've installed and maintained MediaWiki, KWiki, and TWiki. MediaWiki is, by 
far, the most mature and sophisticated, thanks to Wikipedia. TWiki has a lot 
of potential too. I think Joomla has some wiki-like features as well. 

I think it really depends on what you're doing, who's going to be using it 
(i.e. what their technical competence is), and whether you're planning on 
making it public read+write or not.
