Funnily enough, the original Minimig used Xilinx, even though the TG68-based variants have all been Altera-based (the exception being the FPGA reply board's Minimig port, assuming it does actually exist! :P )

I think Altera's easier for beginners to pick up than Xilinx for one very simple reason: SignalTap is available in the free version of the tools, whereas ChipScope isn't.
