protools is nice, sessions, dare i say garage band
Sebelius is evil, especially after joining forces with ProTools.

Cubase was the first to do alot of the stuff ProTools does now but no one really uses Cubase anymore. People stick with Cubase becuase they can't part with their giant VST collection. As far as quality, features, and just the fact that ProTools is a standard in music, tv, and movies nowadays, it's the best way to go.
A new version of Cubase is $400 and you can get an Mbox Mini with ProTools LE software for $329.
