Why is it not considered appropriate to ask for the comparison between two specific software that are supposed to do the same thing?
Personally, I generally seek out comparison articles on software (and hardware, lawn mowers, kitchen appliances, etc.) before deciding which to buy. On StackOverflow I asked about the comparison between VisualGDB and WinGDB. I looked over much of the web related to these plugins, but was unable to find any real feature comparison article or blog. I felt that such information would be valuable and would have been a good fit for StackOverflow as I have used similar comparison type articles in the past.
