Windows has more than just two -- you forgot about Pro-Tools, Nuendo,
Reason, FLStudio, Reaper, Ableton Live...

I believe OOM2 is based on Muse (which has a 2.0 version in beta,
BTW), whereas OOM1 was based on Rosegarden with the notation stuff
stripped out and a couple of other tweaks. I'd tried using OOM1 and
liked it quite a bit but it was terribly unstable so I abandoned it
(and it wouldn't build on anything except Gentoo).
