Ableton Live coz it's the only one I've used. I didn't choose it for any particular feature or anything. I only knew one guy who was doing production and he was using Live so I figured it'd be easier to learn off him. If not for that though, I would have been happy to use Cubase or Logic.
If you already know your way around FLStudio, I see no reason to switch, but you can always try demo's of the others.

Steinberg Cubase Demo (Requires USB-eLicenser)

Ableton Live Demo
http://www.ableton.com/downloads

Propellerhead Reason Demo
http://www.propellerheads.se/download/

Also, I'm gonna make a prediction- FL will get about a thousand-million-trillion votes or something and everything else will get about 6 and a half in total.

I voted "Other", as my DAW of choice would be Sonar if it had a more friendly piano roll. Anyway, your DAW only counts a small amount on the final product, so the best would be the one you find yourself more comfy with.

i already used logic, ableton, and reason
reason is uber-cool for beginners imo - it seriously easy and very nice to handle, very graphic and the workflow is okay too
(if you're skilled you'll get sick of it in a matter of weeks tho XD just hook it up with logic or whatevaaa then)
abletons workflow is DAMN insane, but i don't like the user interface and the way it's working on mac /:
but it's quite a nice alternative to fl imo! if i was on windows i'd go for ableton :3
logic is my curent daw and my total fav - it can be combined with reason, the workflow is pretty cool if you get used to it but it surely takes practice to learn how it works

i also had a look at pro tools and cubase, cubase seems pretty okay, it's pretty close to logic imo but pro tools just looks and feels wrong.
i dunno how reaper is and i just know FL from friends who use windows

I voted for Cubase cause we worked with FL Studio for years and we also produced many tracks with it but with Cubase we got the feeling that many things are easier to handle and in general we like the whole programm more than FL Studio.
Between FL Studio and Cubase we tried Reason, Sonar and Ableton but we got stuck on Cubase _O_

So the new tracks you will hear soon will be made with Cubase :)

Greetings,

btw nice topic ;)

I've only used FL studio and Reaper and I preferred FL studio because it was my first choice. How big are the demos for some other DAWs. I might try some other DAWs when my downloads are about to click over to the next month.

FL Studio since it was the easiest for me to learn. I have no intention of trying other DAWs, but over the next few years if i seriously got into producing and started using a lot of hardware i would probably try Cubase since i heard a lot of people start on FL and move to their because it has better support for hardware or something like that.

But i think FL is great for beginners aslong as you have some good VST plugins.
