I haven't seen that very much on producer boards but there are always people with a bit too much self belief.

A good producer can make something nice with the most simple setup, were a shitty one can make nothing not even with the best setup.
I don't think free (open source) software is anywhere near the quality and complexity, not to mention ease of workflow, that paid stuff has. Of course, this is a generalisation though.
However, if there is a difference between the average music made with free software vs non-free, and we agree that it is mostly the skill of the producer which is the determining factor, does that mean that free software naturally attracts people with a lower skill set?
