Off of the top of my head, being able to arm/unarm tracks while recording, changing inputs while recording was a big one that I don't think anybody else does, even today...
There's a lot of little things, too, that you can find in some software, but not in others.
Direct recording and playback of compressed formats.. Automatic crossfades, drag&drop for inserting files, good mousewheel support, arbitrary grouping of items, on the fly rate conversion for items on tracks, varispeed recording...
I could keep going more...
