I'm evaluating the Xilinx Zynq-7000. I need to aquire and learn programming environments for the RISC processor and the FPGA hardware. Xilinx and National Instruments have software for that, probably others, certainly others for the RISC assembly language...

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.
