Babylock Digitizing

2nd posting attempt. Sorry if this is duplicated.
Any opinions on the best software for digitizing? We own a Babylock Ellageo
and we are looking at Palette 5.0 but are curious if anyone has experience
using other software with the Ellageo. For those that use Palette 5.0, how
long did it take you to become "proficient" at using the software with both
the autodigitizer and by custom digitizing? We are fairly new to embroidery
and very new to digitizing but have seen a few demonstrations and believe we
need to head in that direction for the specific custom work we are planning
to do. If there are other newsgroups where this topic might be more
appropriate, please advise.
TIA for any comments and suggestions.

One of the reasons you may not have gotten any replies is that a similar question gets asked (and mostly answered) pretty routinely here. Take a look at other messages to see if some of your questions are already answered. You can google, using the "groups" tab, and find a host of previous discussions on this topic. Most recently (like yesterday), the thread with the initial subject line of "I don't get it" covers some of this.
Another is that asking for "the best" anything is highly subjective. What's the best automobile, and how long did it take you to learn to drive proficiently? The answer in all cases is. "It depends". Proficient going to the market or proficient at LeMans?
The only sewing-hardware-dependent software you need is whatever writes to any proprietary card that your sewing machine requires. Any digitizing, editing, or customizing can be done with just about any available brand of software (with some you might need an additional design conversion program). What you choose should factor in ease-of-learning, ease-of-use, available training and support, compatibility, cost, and all the other motherhood-and-apple-pie criteria. In whatever proportions are important to YOU.
Sorry if this doesn't provide any definitive answers, but I'm not sure there are any!
