Aids for comparative analysis of software tools/products

If you are asked to recommend the best software tool or product for a particular requirement, a good way to start researching is to check Wikipedia. There are articles specifically devoted to comparative analysis of products under various categories. These articles typically start with the title "Comparison of". Wikipedia's search box supports auto-suggestion, so typing those words first followed by the category can lead you to the required article faster.


The topic of Project Management software came up in a discussion on the LinkedIn Groups (requires free subscription) & I learnt from there & the Comparison of project management software that while Microsoft Project is a commonly used tool, the most expensive tool in the class is Primavera (now owned by Oracle) while CA's Open Workbench & Serena OpenProj are open source alternatives.

LinkedIn Answers and StackOverflow are some other sites where you can find justifiable opinions on competing products.
