As an administrator of a Confluence installation, I have to say that I hate it.
Confluence is fine if you are not going to be touching it or doing any kind of local customizations (hooking it into local auth, etc.). If that's the case, you should really be looking at the hosted version. I've found that Atlassian is frustrating to deal with for support. I ran into a bug in Confluence that has been an open ticket in their issue tracker for 6 years. Years. I've found upgrades to be a pain, generally, and sometimes Atlassian will be fast and furious with them and it's hard to keep up. And the longer you wait, the more painful the upgrades become. I don't deal with the money side of things, but I definitely think that we do not get what we pay for with Confluence. -Sean On 7/25/12 9:05 AM, "Nathan Tallman" <ntall...@gmail.com> wrote: > That's what I'm worried about with MediaWiki.
