The decision on what program to use depends not only of the data being
analyzed but also on the methodological inclination of the researcher.
Those are take a more positivistic approach to qualitative research (a
la Grounded Theory) would find software such as Nvivo and (in the border
between qualitative and quantitative) N5 a better fit because of their
emphasis on structured coding. Those with a more interpretive approach
to qualitative research are better off with software such as Atlas.ti
where coding is a more open ended task.

There was a positive review on the LINGUIST list about a newly released
product called QDA Miner.

Review: http://linguistlist.org/issues/15/15-1243.html#1
Product:  http://www.simstat.com/QDAMiner.htm 

Since it's new, there probably aren't too many people who have used it,
it looks pretty good.
