Ableton Live seems the most fun to trigger loops and backing tracks and jam along with, but ive yet to arrange anything in it.
I think that's totally the right mentality. They all have free trials and they all have different high and low points and workflows. It's all about what works best for you.

There's also nothing wrong with using more than one DAW, either via Rewire or just exporting tracks/stems. I do most of my writing and sound design in Ableton because I love the tools, but I record and mixdown in Reaper because Ableton's mixer sucks nuts and Reaper's routing is great and it's scriptable.

Re: Which DAW to choose?

Ableton is great for turning your ideas to reality quickly. I've switched from logic and it made a big difference. However logic still works better for mixing.
