It's true that with Sibelius, if there is no further development, we are left with a very usable & capable piece of software. Finished? Not really - the tuplet handling leaves things to be desired. I started off with Composers' Mosaic; twenty years ago aspects of tuplet handling were better than where Sibelius is now. Then there's the question of the OS evolving and the running of the application eventually becoming problematic. I don't know enough about programming to know what's involved there to keep it running smoothly on the latest OS, I just know that I want my Sibelius files to still be usable in ten years in case I want to change something, and there's always usually something to tweak.

"Far more intuitive" seems a grand claim, "intuitive" being the word normally associated with Sibelius fans. If our worst fears eventually come to pass we may have no choice but to find out about this first-hand. I've never used Finale, and got to Sibelius quite late...
