I think some people stayed with A2 just because it was working well for
them and didn't want to run risks or change their workflow.

Now that a more robust Ardour 4 is out, I guess usage of A2 will decrease
even more. I would not recommend anyone to install A2 or A3 nowadays. It
may take a while for A4 to arrive at official Fedora, Ubuntu etc repos, but
in the meantime you can get it directly from ardour.org (KXStudio
repositories for Ubuntu users already have A4).
