    Default Wiki Examples

    Does anyone know of good examples of good-looking websites using Wikimedia software but NOT looking like Wikipedia and NOT owned/run by the Wikimedia Foundation?

    THAT is a very good question. I haven't come across one, but then again, I haven't looked for one.

    It's an open source software, which we can use to publish any content and apply whatever license we want to the content.
    most open source licenses allow us to use, misuse and abuse the software as we wish.
    Iit is when we transfer the use of that sofware and/or its derivatives to another person or agency that we have to pay attention to the details...
    ...Am I ritght?

    With open source software, you are free to use it but you can only distribute it under the terms of the original licnese (ie you can't sell it).
