OSNews, Generic OSes If you haven't been to our OS Resources page lately, you haven't missed much action, because like many online resource pages, a lot of effort went into it long ago when it was launched, but it's been lacking attention since, with only occasional updates. Alas, thus is the sorrow of Web 1.0. We'd like to drag OS Resources into the participatory web, and let the OSNews community help keep it up to date. Wiki seems like an obvious solution. So I'd like to ask, dear readers, is there a Wiki system that you think would be especially good for a small-but-growing OS Resource guide? There's Mediawiki, of course, but it seems a bit heavyweight and user-unfriendly for something small and simple. I've had good experience with Mindtouch Deki, but thought I should examine other options before picking it. So what do you think? Is Wiki the way to go, if so, which one? And what would you like to see in our new OS Resources?

You can turn Wordpress into a Wiki with a plugin (

I have not tried it for now.

I wouldn call wp-wiki a wiki. It's just a way to use wiki-commands in wordpress. nothing else.

A real wiki wouldn need the wp-admin interface to edit a page or even add one.

Yes, I tried it myself (;
