What is basically the most common / de facto standard, if there is one? Is it helpful to use the standard, in terms of sharing resources? Or does it not matter so much?
What is the most useful / flexible / import-exportable? What is the most likely to not go bankrupt in 10 years after I've put in an irreproducible amount of work into building my database?
Which do you like best, and why? Which is the easiest to work with? Which integrates best with Word? Which integrates with (La)Tex/BibTex?
Is there anything else worth knowing?
(I'm on a PC, but often use Macs at work and school. I have access to EndNore, RefWorks, and of course the open source BibTex options, but am open to purchasing anything reasonably priced.)
