(I am adapting and copying my question here from Software Recommendations.)
Would a question about which software technology to choose for a given scenario be on topic ?
The question I need to ask somewhere is along the lines of "I'm going to write a program to communicate with another process in a scenario X with requirements Y; which Inter Process Communication technologies fit best, Sockets or DCOM or Named Pipes or Shared Memory or etc.".
Would that be off-topic at Programmers?
My first thought was asking on Stack Overflow but it seems to me that these questions are off-topic there.
I know that they are off-topic at Software Recommendations too.
