This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Questions seeking product, service, or learning material recommendations are off-topic because they become outdated quickly and attract opinion-based answers. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve. Share your research. Here are a few suggestions on how to properly ask this type of question." – bwDraco, random
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

For future reference, this isn't really a "programming question" and would be better asked on . The folks there are pretty helpful and that site is a bit more on-topic with what you are asking. – Robert Cartaino Feb 7 '10 at 3:02
