The often-posed question among life science researchers, “Which software tool is the best for bioimage analysis,” indicates misunderstanding which calls for explanations. It appears that this question cannot be answered easily, maybe even not at all. Biological research problems are not general, and each of them questions specific events among various phenomena seen in biological systems. Therefore, the answer to the “Which is the best?” question to a high extent depends not only on the biological problem that is to be addressed but also on the specific goals and criteria to be met.
