Alas, my experience was the other way around; after introducing PmWiki
into my workplace, I decided to use it for myself.  I had the task, as
webmaster, to change our internal website from a pure HTML site (which
nobody kept up to date) to a mix of plain HTML (for some things) and a
wiki.  So I evaluated several wikis, and decided on PmWiki, for the
following reasons:
- ease of installation
- ease of upgrades (the only wiki I found with a completely painless
  upgrade method)
- use of flat files for storage (easier maintenance)
- clean installation of plugins (no need to modify core code)

Then I realized I could use it for my own stuff, and as I got more
familiar with lovely things like pagelists, I ended up using it for more
and more and writing my own plugins.
