There's no victory over anything whatsoever. Read it again, it's just a codename. If that serves anything at all, to my own defense that is, Qtractor is still a pet project hobby of mine, as all things in Linux audio world for that matter.
So here it goes: Ardour is a full fledged, pro-level DAW and, for crying out loud on its own, the flagship of the free/open-source pro-audio fleet and movement, not only Linux anymore nowadays. On the other hand, Qtractor is a sequencer (hinted by its own subtitle, in case you didn't notice) with a twist and a few of a DAW features. And it strictly runs on the Linux platform only and most important yet, it has been targeted to a (re)creational personal home-studio audience ever since.
Heard about the techno-boy bedroom (with a guitar) folk? Well, that's exactly what it is, from day zero. Hope you all get the picture ;)
