I'm not sure; therefore I first ask here: Are questions about Acquia Dev Desktop allowed in Drupal Answers? If not, could you please explain why?
Since it is a tool used exclusively from people who develop sites using Drupal, yes, they can be asked on Drupal Answers. In fact, there are (at this moment) 34 questions tagged acquia-dev-desktop.
It is not different from the case of questions about Drush. The difference is that probably there are more questions you can ask about Drush than Acquia Dev Desktop; in both the cases, you don't use them for making sites with WordPress.
