I've written an answer down below, that properly expresses my viewpoints. It can be found here.
I while back, there was the following question: Do we want recommendation/shopping questions?
The leading and accepted answer, strongly discourages the acceptance of software recommendations, and license recommendations. However, I think it would be wise to note that we now accept license recommendation questions. Quoting the aforementioned answer:
In my (strong) opinion, no. If we allow these types of questions, we'll get license-recommendation questions... Noting this message in chat, those will (sorry, but they will) lead to endless debates and arguments about which license is better than another, which is not something we want to have to clear up.
In my opinion, this is fairly outdated, as we now accept license recommendations. Quoting the follow-up answer:
Inasmuch as software that's specifically relevant in an open source context is on-topic here, recommendations for such software is on-topic. The Software Recommendations site has established guidelines for good software recommendation questions as well as answers. I encourage recommendations for software that's specifically useful to a particular community to be asked on a site where the audience is that community, rather than on SR.SE. SR.SE does ok with generalist software, but lacks community expertise when it comes to questions that require experience in a specific domain.
I feel like I should also note a few more things:
Fears similar to license recommendations can be rectified in numerous ways: Meta faq reasons, close reasons (I think my close reason on license recommendations can be adjusted to include recommendations on software), and other ways.
Policing shouldn't be an issue: Again, license recommendations are great, and super successful.
We've also got a few questions that have asked for recommendations, which I have currently hammered down in the process. Therefore, they could also be more popular as time passes.
Don't try to find other posts that already state a stance on this issue: I've raised this because those posts are outdated in that they took into consideration other factors. I'm looking for a fresh stance from the community about how we should act.
