I understand that asking questions about the choice of consumer electronics are not allowed, and with good reason. Similarly, opinion based questions otherwise too are not allowed. I would like to know whether questions asking about the best simulation software and/or practice, related to the design of electronics (such as a C-E amplifier), or electrical devices (such as a dc-dc converter- electric motor setup) allowed?
I am in conflict as to whether to ask them as they involve some opinion-related answers (as some them are commercial products), while on the other hand knowing and using simulation tools is a valuable skill for electrical engineers/hobbyists/students etc., and therefore knowing what the best tool is for the purpose beforehand goes a long way.
I have seen this question What is the correct SE channel to ask about an electrical engineering SOFTWARE question?; however that question was related to the usage of a certain software, which usually does not bring opinionated answers; while I ask about questions regarding the choice of software tools, which has the possibility of strongly opinionated answers
