MediaWiki needs no introduction, but we’ll offer one anyway. MediaWiki is the engine behind Wikipedia, the behemoth website with millions of articles written by millions of users and translated into dozens of languages. Scale, internationalization, and flexibility have turned MediaWiki into one of the most popular open source wiki applications of all times. MediaWiki is also often the first choice for organizations who wish to bring the power of transparency and collaboration into their businesses to publish technical documentation, create knowledge bases, and build intranets.

I am researching neuroscience, and needed a way of organising my research data.
Now I have a wiki on my local machine, I just set my FireFox homepage to (can't post links)/localhost:8080/mediawiki/Main_Page.
I've wanted a wiki-alike for writing notes and world development for literally years. With this machine, I have a localhost mediawiki that just works, without any trouble whatsoever. It's fantastic!
