I can't believe I haven't posted about Pro Tools in here yet. I just don't have it in me to enumerate the things that suck about it right now but it really is the most crash prone, out of date, overpriced piece of junk DAW I've used, and if I'm not being paid I refuse to touch it. The only positive thing I can say about it is that the keyboard shortcuts are pretty well thought out.
I haven't tried 11 yet but looking at some of the early pro reviews it sounds like an upgrade from the 90s technology under the hood of 10 to technology that every other good DAW had in place by 2006 or 2007. Also they eliminated the "Complete Production Toolkit" bundle (i.e. the "unlock features that are standard in most programs" bundle) so now insCtead of having to spend about $2800 to get a piece of software that still compares poorly to Reaper on every level except for control surface support (and Nuendo/Cubase already had that down back when I still used them 5 or 6 years ago), now you have to buy a 5-figure, full blown HD system with it's overpriced, mediocre converters, just to get uncrippled software. Also it's not backward compatible with the previous 20 years worth of hardware, so EVEN IF YOU ALREADY OWN AN HD SYSTEM you have to get A NEW ONE.
Also pay-per-ticket tech support.
Even in the 90s when it was dominant, it was a second rate solution for people who wanted nonlinear editing but couldn't afford a Sonic Solutions rig that was even more expensive (but actually sounded good by all accounts).
