I switched from Xylinx to Altera years ago and so tend to recommend their stuff. Their Quartus software is free , I recommend version 9.1 as there is still waveforms for testing instead of text prinout. There are also tons of literature on their site. Software and lit also free from Xylinx. To get from reading PDF's to something that you can interact with I recommend grabbing a development board such as http://www.altera.com/products/devkits/partners/kit-terasic-de0-nano.html for $86 USD http://www.terasic.com.tw/cgi-bin/page/archive.pl?Language=English&Categor yNo=53&No=83 $150 http://www.altera.com/products/devkits/altera/kit-cyc3-starter.html $199 You could start with the old Max series which act more like CPLDs than Cyclones and there are some cheaper development boards $20-$50 http://www.altera.com/products/devkits/max-index.jsp I am in the process of developing an Altera based board that can be loaded from an Arduino, I think learning to "write hardware" is a great experience.
