This recent question on reference managers and note taking has got me thinking again. I am on the record of not liking big-list questions and really not liking big-list software questions. Questions about reference managers seem to keep coming up.

Do we want a big-list type question similar to this LaTeX editors question and if so, what do we want the answers to look like?

  • I'd support this. One question is whether we want to permit judgements or comparisons, or whether we simply want a list. Relately, should it be a list in a single answer, or do we go for one solution per answer to allow for voting?

Several times I've found big-list questions very useful, and I don't think there are enough sound reasons to ban them (whatever SE says).

For the format, community wiki and the shorter, the better: the relevant link, and a short description of what one likes about the product. Please, please let's not ask an essay for every suggestion.
