"True greatness is measured by how much freedom you give to others, not by how much you can coerce others to do what you want." --Larry Wall, Creator of Perl
Inc. Magazine spotlighted PmWiki in its February issue. Inc. said "It's the true open-source alternative. It takes some tech smarts to use, but once you've downloaded the software, it's totally customizable." The magazine liked the "far-flung community of developers constantly adding new features," and that the price was "free." It compared it with other wikis costing up to $10,000.
