Where to ask a question about an IDE?
What is the proper place to ask about the pros and cons of multiple IDE's on a specific point?
I'm not sure if this should go on SO, superuser or programmers.
Questions about IDEs are probably most appropriate for SO as per the FAQ:
What kind of questions can I ask here?
- software tools commonly used by programmers
Be careful to make sure the question is objective and doesn't get into shopping-list question territory. A question like "Does Foo IDE support Advanced Widget Frobbing?" (assuming that info isn't available with a reasonable amount of research) is okay. Questions like "Which IDE has the best Advanced Widget Frobbing?" or "What are the pros and cons of Foo IDE's Advanced Widget Frobbing?" are too subjective and will be quickly closed.
Open-ended pro/con list questions generally fall into the territory of what not to ask as they're generally too chatty and have no clearly "right" answer.
If you're referring to this question, then no, it isn't appropriate for Stack Overflow.
These types of questions are better asked in a forum, or some other venue that prizes discussion above canonical answers. Stack Overflow (and Stack Exchange writ large) is not one of those places.
