Moving the Ubuntu Wiki to Mediawiki or something else?

Hey Everyone,

While we are focused on the performance issues here I think we should also
consider the user interview. MoinMoin just isn't very intuitive, and I
would argue that MediaWiki isn't all that better.

When I was at XPRIZE I evaluated a bunch of different wikis and WikiSpaces
came out on top. Now, it is not open source, which may be a blocker, but it
is a great service, externally hosted (so they absolutely have to have it
be responsive), affordable, and provides a really great and simple user

Just my $0.02c.
