I'm evaluating the Xilinx Zynq-7000. I need to aquire and learn programming environments for the RISC processor and the FPGA hardware.

I'd like input with regard to the best environs [user friendly, effective, reliable, etc] before I buy software and start taking the classes...

Xilinx provides an evaluation version of his dk (ise webpack IIRC). Maybe also NI has similar evaluation software. Take a look.

Experience is very subjective; Download the evaluation kits, try it for few time and see what you find "best".
Take into account that you are bound to the hardware, so the SDK is only one factor of choice, not the "only", and not the most important.
And it is not important what is the "best" tool, but which one brings you to the goal you have.

Hope that helps.
