I like wikis for knowledge gathering / sharing but the usability of many of them could be better in my opinion (for example, MediaWiki is popular but has quite complicated and verbose syntax which can put some people off).
OneNote, on the other hand, is fairly easy to use and also can be viewed as a kind of wiki. However, I have only experience with OneNote as a single user on a local PC. I'm not sure about these things:
- Is there a version history stored for every page? Can I do diffs between revisions?
- Can OneNote "wiki" be hosted as an intranet website, i.e. something like a self-hosted OneNote Web Application? Or are Microsoft services like Office 365 or SkyDrive the only ways to view OneNote pages in the browser?
- Can OneNote pages have their URLs I could link to?
In general, do you think it is viable to use OneNote as an enterprise wiki? What advantages and disadvantages will it have?
