The main advantage of is that it supports file uploads, which is a
help to casual net users who don't have online storage.  The main advantage
to is stability, as Jean-Claude backs it. is a free
service by a for-profit company, and could disappear without notice.

Jean-Claude and I have discussed some upgrades to the wiki,
including addition of a file area.  Until that is worked out, we'll have to
continue with two wiki's.  I don't think it's so difficult to move the
content later on, so I recommend to use whichever feels comfortable.
