Where else can I ask for software recommendations?


Not all Stack Exchange sites have banned software recommendations. In my limited experience, they are permitted on many of the smaller sites, as long as they pertain to the topic of that site. And it helps if they are as detailed as they need to be here.

Likely a few of the smaller SE sites as well, but as you noticed, software recommendations - at least for now - are still allowed on quite a few SE sites. Mar 31 at 5:58
