This site has received several questions that are in the format of "Is Software X a good option for my task?", or "What are the differences between tool X and tool Y?". These questions are normally closed as off-topic, but I don't think they are intrinsically bad questions. They are not too broad, nor opinion-based, and should attract no more than a couple answers. Reviews could be objective, especially when there is a specific task at hand. That also makes them different from the reviews one would find in online blogs, since the focus is on a specific set of requirements specified by the user.
I know that these types of questions don't fit the current requirements to be on-topic in the help center. My question is whether it is possible to relax these requirements a little and broaden the scope of on-topic questions.
In the long run, this would help the traffic of this site as well as the percentage answered questions. For example: this question on SuperUser has gotten on the front page merely a few hours after putting a similar question on hold on this site. Granted, neither of these questions is of a particularly high quality, but they could be improved with some editing. Moreover, the accepted answer on the first question looks to me like it could belong on a software recommendations website
