Geez, I'm glad finally someone finally brought that up! Some people are so consumed with benchmarks and technical data that they forget about what the DAW is really for....creativity. Granted, you need to be sure a system can handle your needs, but you also need to be realistic. If you need to load 2000+ MIDI tracks and 100 virtual instruments, is that practical? No. Is it a convenience? Maybe for some, but not necesary. Hans Zimmer does, but he has an assitant that runs his arsenal of slave computers. I know many pro film/tv composers using moderate setups using Logic X and/or Cubase. It really makes no difference on the DAW, but whatever you are comfortable with...period. I'm forced to use the elusive Pro Tools, but only for delivering final cues to the editors. It's the same with Mac and PC; both are excellent, but it comes down to personal preference (I use both in my studio).

Orchestra instruments with 10 Kontakt instances 16outs each. PSP plugs, RobPapen synths, Sylent1, IK Stuff, Nebula trough bridge emulation, Ozone, Melodyne, and some external hardware. All works like a charm under Logic, not same in Cubase.

I've been working with Logic for nearly a year now. I'm know my way around. But still, I HATE the workflow. It should be called Illogic. It's clunky and unintuitive. (I realize this opinion is likely attributably to my background, but I can say I've never been so impeded by a DAW.) It boggles my mind that the program is as popular as it is.
Logic could have quadruple the performance of Cubase (which is what Orchetect is suggesting above), and still, I'd never consider using it for personal purposes.

For me, I use it because I have to for work. Otherwise I'd delete the program. No temptation to use it for personal purposes whatesoever. N-O-N-E.
And I, too, have to disagree with the other poster. For me, Cubase is stable for the most part. I don't have long save times. And the crashing isn't too frequent. What I do work around the crashing is set my autosave to every minute - that way I can't lose too much work.
