I am new and I want to help

Hi,
I am new CPLD and FPGA. Should I start Xilinx devices or ALTERA
devices? and verilog or VHDL?
I think buy a CPLD starter board.(CoolRunner II Design Kit or MAX 7000
Quick Start Development Kit) Can you recommended any board for
starting?

Al, That looks like a valuable resource. Thanks for the effort of writing it all up. Rob
