Many questions here do or will ask about the capability of various software packages. We might find it helpful to generate a list of links (or even better) descriptions etc. of the most commonly used or innovative packages. Does https://genealogy.stackexchange.com/tags/software/info seem like a good place to do this? If so, go forth and edit!
No, I don't think specific software packages should be listed as that would be a subjective listing and unfair to those not listed. There are over 700 programs for genealogy available. See GenSoftReviews. Also it would take regular maintenance, since software programs come and go and change capability.
There are sites that have good comparisons and reviews, but we don't want to be linking to sites away from StackExchange.
So I'm not sure what's best here.
Note: I run GenSoftReviews.
