[Moin-user] Windows and Moin (yes, the moin packages load).

I also thought twiki had a few nice features that could be useful in a
work environment, mainly uploading office documents etc (not that I am a
huge fan of MS office, but its pervasiveness is a reality)..

My decision to go with  MoinMoin was because it was not written in perl.
  What I know of Python is encouraging (the syntax is downright cool),
and if I am unfortunate enough to have to get into moin source I will be
fortunate in using a language designed for people instead of machines
(thats a value judgement on my part.  IMO
C/C#/Java/C+@/VB/Pascal/lisp/xml like languages with the opening and
closing tokens are made that way because context-free grammars are fun
to write parsers for.  SOX/Python/Haskell are easier on the eyes and
human comprehension).

Supposedly (having not looked any implementations) MoinMoin stores its
files the way you edit them, while Twiki stores them in some abstruse
