I don't have any particular claims on performance at hand. TWiki stores the data in plaintext files which may or may not be beneficial depending on various scenarios, the code is very mature but that of course does not say anything on whether the performance is good or not compared to, say, MediaWiki. Here  is a reasonably recent writeup on TWiki's performance. As to the features, I (contrary to sebastian in an earlier answer) quite like the syntax, I think it's a bit more comfortable the MediaWiki in popular scenarios. There's a good ACL system, it's got an integrated ticket system, a mobile-version plugin, and I too think the whole concept of Webs is neat. The search system is extensive and includes regex searching. And yeah, it's not PHP :) (no flame intended™)  http://www.twiki.net/blog_2008-03-25.html -- [a]
