We are using Foswiki at our company, for our customers and for some personal projects and Foswiki is a really helpful and nice product.
Great software, thank you.
Foswiki has made an incredible difference for our business. It is truly an enabler of collaboration. And it is a project that shows a fantastic developer enthusiasm. New plug-ins are continuously being added to the project and you are never alone. If you are a developer or an end user. Around the clock there are people willing to help you without asking for money. It is incredible that you can get something that powerful for free. There is Open Office, there is Firefox, there is Linux, and there is Foswiki. All the same league. Professional well working software for free.
We are currently employing Foswiki in an non-profit with 250 users and would like to recommend it to anybody who is looking for a reliable and secure enterprise wiki solution with strong and dynamic developer community behind it. The upgrade from the dead twiki project was seamless and painless, many thanks to the team!
Fast moving and responsive project. Successor to TWiki.
