It's the pros who don't suffer from insecurity issues. Pro Tools use to be inferior to other DAWs coming late to 64bit. They are use to the workflow and for them time is money.
I know a guy who does scoring work in Hollywood and loathes Pro Tools but feels stuck with it because everybody else in the industry assumes it. He says his view is not uncommon; PT is apparently the Microsoft Word of audio engineering for film production though it gives few joy. I am not sure this comment is actually relevant to the thread, but evidently once I get started typing I am going to hit the Submit button regardless.
I've always seen Pro Tools as being for engineers, not arrangers/composers/musicians/etc. That's where it's still popular as far as I am aware from my friends who are still using it 24/7 in Nashville. And if I'm tracking a band, editing, or automating moves on a big mix, I prefer it hands down.
But for MAKING
music, I've been a Reason head for almost 20 years now and. Though I was a Pro Tools geek for 20 years I never used it to create songs (I used Studio Vision with my PT hardware in the 1990s, and Reason from 2003 on).
As far as what I see, the majority Reason "personality" is a creative type first and a technical type second whereas Pro Tools is popular with the opposite types - in my experience.
