Pro Tools has automatic delay compensation, easy architecture, uncomplicated layout, you can mix it all from the playlist window, when adding plugin's it doesn't rebuild the entire mixer, much more choice of plugins and plenty of interface controllers available not to mention Midi which may be a requirement. I'm not saying that you can't do a mix in Pyramix , but it's a hell of a job by comparison and there are some very obvious limitations.
Editing wise Pyramix is in a different league, all real time fades, (I know that Pro Tools now offers this), Source destination editing, three and four point editing, a dedicated fade editor and the ability to slip both sides of a fade within the fade editor. With Source Destination editing all the original material is still displayed on the timeline and the fade editor allows you to "tune" the edit, this is really fast and would be very much more difficult in Pro Tools.
In addition you can build a CD/DDP image from the timeline with all the protocols for a red-book standard pressing, including things like ISRC codes and CD text (though this will not transfer to CDR's).
