Even big names like Deadmau5 use 5 different daws just because they do different things. There's no such thing as "the best DAW", but there's no harm in trying 'em all to find out which one suits you best.
Yeah, and like izotonik up there said (last year, I might add...), mainly Ableton, but FL for loops and the more intuitive piano roll. If you have multiple ones at your disposal, those differences in the ways it accomplishes certain things will affect how you create your music, and some daws will be better suited to accomplish what you want than others. I would want to utilize those different possibilities for my track by attempting to write seperate elements of it in different daw settings. Of course the bulk of your work will be done in the one you know best, but what's the harm in spending a little extra time with your music by forcing yourself to see it from a different workflow perspective? Kind of like a keyboard player trying to write with guitar. Yes, you're still making music, and you can relatively accomplish the same things, but there are more possibilities you wouldn't have otherwise seen, no matter how well-versed in your main instrument you think you may be.
