Lets give some props to Rosegarden here. Chris and the rest of the RG
gang have followed a totally different path in every sense, yet RG seems
to be developing quite well and meeting its design goals pretty well.
They didn't do it with any dotcom funds or other "independent wealth" -
just hard work and devotion. Even so, yes, RG is probably moving a
little less slowly than Ardour and is probably (though not certainly)
receiving less attention from the industry. Its still a great project
and it should not be overlooked when discussing "success stories". 

There are others too, that have been 100% successful in terms of their
design goals: Hydrogen, FreqTweak, Freewheeling, Jamin to name just 4.
Again, this developed under very different models than Ardour, so I
think its dangerous to over-generalize here.
