well from time to time the http://www.wikimatrix.org/ gives an answer.

i would argue it is first of all a personal opinion. one will find 
multiple wikis that do the job. but only one with a better acceptance 
than others.

in addition it depends into what environment you want to put your wiki 
in. if a lot of things are php based your're better off with media wiki. 
integration into other tools will be easier.
if youre java based xwiki will win the competition. even if php / java 
integration is possible it will be more work.

also mediawiki is not the ultimate solution. the acl capabilities are 
rudimentary. its very unstructured. categories dont help. but it is the 
perfect solution for wikipedia and a lot of other sites. but it is not 
perfect for manuals for software or software projects.

the purpose of xwiki is different (or seems different for me).
