I've found the MediaWiki wiki to be very flexible and useful. As a bonus, it's very familiar to anyone who's used Wikipedia.
You really can't beat Confluence, especially for $10 (for 10 or fewer users). We use it at my job and it is really fantastic. The organization takes a little getting used to, though.
Disclaimer: I work for Fog Creek The FogBugz wiki is great because it's integrated with the rest of the app, but the editor is buggy. The good news is we're doing a major revamp.
I suggest ScrewTurn for wiki. You can also take a look at AxoSoft OnTime which is very good software for bug tracking, scrum/agile project managment, dev wiki, help desk and more.

We're using Assembla in the company I run. They provide unlimited code hosting (Git/SVN), ticketing, wiki, scrum and other useful tools, and doesn't cost much.
We tried most wiki packages over the years with little success. It was just tough getting enough traction to get the development and project teams to actually use one.
