One of the problems with CMS's and most wiki's is the need for other pieces
(e.g. a database). Most people want to focus on content. With PmWiki you don't
have to be a DBA... which is one of its nicest features. Most CMS/Wiki database
based sites will go down hard on a slashdotting since the adhoc DBA didn't
understand what "might" happen and most don't have the means to simulate such.
PmWiki's simplicity is a big advantage.
