There is a question I want to ask on stackoverflow regarding views on free web development ide's. The question is inherently subjective and it is also a duplicate, in a sense.
However, the question has been asked many times before and most are closed as duplicates to a question asked in Sept. 08 (from what I have been able to find). Stackoverflow also, in my opinion, has the right target audience to ask that question. But a lot changes in 2 years, such tools advance or are left behind in the wake of better products. I expect responses to the same question could be different now.
So what are the views on questions of this nature? Should it be asked on stackoverflow and if so how can I avoid it being immediately flamed as a duplicate?
