There are many clones, aren't there? Everypedia and others. But they don't have the marriage with the such machines.

https://wiki2.org/ is an interface redesign, such as:
http://www.wikiwand.com/

Everypedia is complete bottom-up architecture and workflow redesign, quite different from these in concept and grandeur.

WikiWand is my favorite design so far, but Wiki2 looks awesome too.
There's a list of known redesigns on-wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Unsolicited_redesigns#Live_sites
There's one more I saw in recent weeks, just can't recall its name currently.

It's a shame that WP still runs on decade old software with outdated design. The "quality" of the community is not on that level to be able to progress, despite numerous efforts and many hours invested.

You are right about the software, but worser is the content of WP NL what is total rubbish.

This one is a nicer design, made by wmf, and dead since 2014: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Winter

Well, that's the Wikipedia Lethargy...
It's really a shame that such an unprofessional, vision-less "product" became so prominent.
Or to be correct, it's a shame that such a prominent product is so unprofessional and vision-less.

As Larry Sanger said, the trolls came in, took over, and as I say, there's no notable progress since.
