I've used all three, and I really prefer Rosegarden for the middle ground it 
occupies here.  More power and JACKiness than Audacity, but not so much power 
and JACKiness as Ardour.

I work at Rosegarden, of course, so everything I say about the application is 
definitely biased.  Even so, it's a valid enough opinion.  I could have wound 
up working somewhere else, and I put my eggs in this basket for good reason.
