WikiWars C#ometh


A reader sent me a link to this recently, http://wiki.csharp-online.net.


On first blush, I see sparse content, a slick MediaWiki implementation, and Google Ads… Wait! Is a Microsoft employee actually blogging about this?


[Please wait while I change into my Microsoft SuperSuit.]


I would be much more likely to use and support a C# wiki that runs on a Wiki that is actually written in C#, like FlexWiki.


Eat the C# dogfood!


FlexWiki is a C# .NET shared source project that you can contribute to, modify, download, and deploy on your own site. It’s also a grassroots effort that Microsoft supports…http://spaces.msn.com/davidorn/. 🙂


FlexWiki WikiTopics can now be stored in either a flat file database or in SQL Server!

  1.  Korby is

    correct here. I understand having the nice interface and good information out

    there…

    I think your are being pretty hard on a new site. Maybe they will use a C# wiki when it reaches the level of MediaWiki. And, maybe Mediawiki hosts are cheaper than C#/Asp hosts. Maybe they don’t have access to SQL server on their host.

    I think we should support new sites–it’s hard to get a new site going today.

  3. My responses are getting kind of long. On my blog I got a response

    to my rantings on Korby’s

    I like <a href="http://wiki.csharp-online.net/">C# Online.NET</a> and I think it’s going to be a great site!

    Do you think MSDN is written in C#?

  5. ServerGirl says:

    Sorry that link should say just:

    C# Online.NET: http://wiki.csharp-online.net/

    I don’t know about MSDN but gotdotnet is written in C# (.NET 2.0) and runs on Windows Server 2003 with SQL Server 2005 "Yukon" servers (64 bit) on the back end.

    I walk the walk.

    With gotdotnet, I aim to go above and beyond the call of duty in the dogfood eating department. In the future, we are actively considering consuming shared source community code contributions (non-Microsoft), on the server side, with author attribution, of course.
