I use PMWiki, it's dead easy to install and stores everything in text  
files which suited me perfectly for a basic internal Wiki for my  
colleagues and I to keep technical stuff on (as a replacement for an  
old Lotus Notes database).

IIRC I tried MediaWiki and it was a pain to install and configure for  
my basic needs so that's why I went over to PMWiki.

But if you're comfortable with Moin then maybe that's a good idea (I  
always like to stick with things I know if I haven't got time or  
patience to investigate alternatives).
