What is FL Studio?
FL Studio (originally known as FruityLoops) is a full-featured Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) offering a complete range of professional tools for everything from audio editing and beat creation to advanced arrangement, composition, mixing and mastering. Sporting a fast, high-tech UI that runs at native speed, the DAW defaults to a relatively simple drum pattern sequencing interface while more advanced features are just a click or keypress away.
One of its most notable and distinguishing features, FL Studio is available through a lifetime license where a one-time purchase grants users continued updates forever after. The license is available across several editions providing access to an increasing number of bundled plugins with the mid-range tiers covering everything needed for pro quality music. The top tier includes the complete line of high-end synthesizers and effects developed by Image-line.
FL Studio is also highly recognized for several other features like its intuitive and responsive piano roll sequencer, fully vector-based UI with multi-touch support that extends the already adept mixer with full screen scaling and the ability to easily adjust multiple track levels simultaneously when mixing and mastering. The DAW also includes a unique visualizer plugin to create ultra-high resolution, 60fps music videos using an easy template-based approach powered by a highly configurable, modular visual system capable of producing practically any visualization imaginable.

It’s not even close to being considered DAW, let alone an alternative to FL Studio

It does, at least to me, seem the most professional. I have to admit tho I haven't played long with other alternatives. As a linux user, I first tried supercollider ( a clojure based thing with bindings for python (foxdot) ) As good as it was, programming music, as I got into game development, I needed a faster solution. LMMS provided that just fine
