I've started to use also MilkyTracker and NitroTracker nowadays.

MilkyTracker is pretty good for chiptunes.

how much have you made on Nitrotracker? I'm always itching to hear more Nitro tunes. Wanna upload 'em in the Nitro Tracks & Songs forum for people to listen to? Please?!?!

For me it has to be Open Modplug Tracker, I started out on the standard version, witch was very easy to learn and then upgraded to OpenMPT, mainly because I can use VST instruments on it. 

So basically I like OpenMPT, because it's user friendly, I know just about all the tricks for making chip-tunes on it, it works with just about any computer (unlike those DOS trackers *cough fasttracker II*) and it can use VST's

I started tracking in 1998 with Modplug Tracker. Then I stopped in 2001 because school etc.
When I got out of school in 2007 I started tracking again. I started small, with Fami Tracker. Then moved to LMMS and resolved to return to tracker mode (LMMS was a sequencer like FL Studio but freeware).
2009: madTracker but the Vst were too much for my PC and my musical skills, so I came back to the source.
 
Today I'm tracking with FT2 (Dosbox) and i now understand why many musicians stick to this wonderful app  :angel:

I use LMMS too, but it's not actually freeware but free software. There's quite a difference.

LMMS seems to be more popular than I thought!

I started tracking way back when in around 1996. Digital Tracker on Atari Falcon - good ole days :D It read .mod/.xm/.it files, but it would only save in DTM format (can anyone here claim to know it? ;)). I discovered ModPlug Tracker sometime around 2000 along with switching to a PC, and have been happy with it since. I can't imagine using a different tool nowadays. I first started composing in .mod, but quickly switched to .xm, and a couple of years later to .it. It's what I'm currently using, and it feels most comfortable.

Started out on a progam called Soundclub in 96, it was a simple side scrolling Mod tracker
quickly moved to FASTTRACKER after seeing/hearing the possibilty's with .xm

i have tried others since, IT, Milky, used Renoise on a few, Skale, Modpug \ loads of others


These days i just use FT2 2.08 running on a Win98 PII with 256mb of ram using a Soundblaster
.....when the macine dies, i just build another out of scrap  :P at zero cost!
nothing else really does it for me, FT2 fits like a glove, has a bit of grit, its great!

wouldn't mind sourcing a awe64/gold for it ethier, i have fond memories of that card  ;D

I started out in Scream Tracker, then moved to Impulse Tracker and now I use Schism Tracker. I guess once you are used to an interface you just want to stick to it.

Protracker 3.62 is the one I logged the most amount of hours in and there's really no other tracker that gets me in the zone workflow-wise quicker than it does. However I've started to grow real fond of XM and Milkytracker lately, even though I often curse over my hands doing PT-things all the time. Also Milkytracker looks really nice. It looks like candy with all the colorful digits and letters in the pattern. (:
