Best Daw for Guerrilla Dad Recording

I tried a few DAWs for my recording-adventures (Samplitude Silver, Podium, LMMS, Mixbus, Ardour, Qtractor…) and then stumbled upon an old friend: Audacity. It’s incredibly easy to setup and use, multi-platform, fast, reliable plus it can even do some editing. Best of all, it’s free! I use at least three PCs for recording (Windows 7, Windows 8, AV-Linux) and at least two of my contributing friends are using their Macs. It’s quite impressive, how easily you can exchange files without having to worry about formats and such. Audacity lacks non-destructive editing and a decent mixer – otherwise I could even be tempted to use it for mixing;)
