GuMax is the combination of Gu and Max; Gu is my last name, and Max is the abbreviation of "Maximization".

GuMax is a free software Mediawiki skin originally written for It's derived from Monobook skin. This design is dedicated to maximize the space for the main content page, and made Wiki as a professional web site which can be applied to many types of business that suits your needs.

The main navigation menu has been moved to the top, and all the other tools are moved to the bottom, plus all the background are redesigned. It looks clean and professional. It has all the MediaWiki facilities, but it's not "MediaWiki look".
