On Stack Overflow there are a lot of questions about software recommendations that are closed as off-topic, but these questions would be on topic here. Some of them are too old to migrate. Is it ok to ask this questions again here?
We want questions representing problems this community is actively trying to solve, presented within guidelines that this community establishes and adopts.
There's over 120 questions on the site right now, a lack of content is not a problem. What we need is content that meets the expectations of quality that this community sets out, and quite a bit of those old Stack Overflow questions (aside from being old and potentially irrelevant) fail to meet that bar.
It's useful though, because many of those questions illustrate precisely what we don't want in answers, and to some degree, questions. We want narrowly scoped questions to which only a few good answers would apply, and we want in-depth answers that really speak to the question, and the personal experience of the person writing the answers.
The typical one-link-per-answer that gets 60 up votes on Stack Overflow is precisely what we're trying to avoid here.
If you (personally) had a Question closed on Stack Overflow because it asked for a Software Recommendation, and you still want an Answer, then yes, you can ask the same Question here.
Perhaps you will improve the Question, either based on the information given at SO, the passage of time, or your own further experience.
What you shouldn't do is try and recycle other people's closed SO questions. As @TimPost says, we want Quality, not Quantity.
