Second Generation Wiki
First generation wikis. Some example of features:
Use simple wiki syntax to format text, create tables, create links, display images, etc. Alternatively use a powerful WYSIWYG editor to edit the content of pages.
Any change made in XWiki is saved under version control, meaning you can view any previous version of a page, compare different versions or rollback to any past version.
Control who can view, edit or delete pages in a flexible manner. Apply rights to a page, its children or an entire wiki.
Allows searching on the full wiki using wildcards, faceting search results, getting search result RSS feeds and more.
Export wiki pages to PDF, ODT, RTF, XML or HTML.

Discuss important topics using multiple forums that support answers, comments and votes.
Create and assign tasks for designated projects, with associated assignees and due dates.

Applying it to XWiki gives the above diagram.
What it means is that there are thousands and thousands of applications required by users that are not built today because of prohibitive complexity and costs (the yellow area is larger than the red area on the diagram).
They would also take too long to build and their value would decrease as more and more time passes for their implementation.
They need to be created here and now to have the highest possible value.
XWiki is a cost-effective solution that allows non-developers to create those required applications quickly and in an organic manner.
