Thank you to everyone who answers, your help is very much appreciated.

I would consider some things such as how peer pressure and how fanboys have made PT popular. I would also research how while PT may be the most popular app in commercial facilities, it is now one of the lesser used apps in home studios. In a addtaion how commercial studios are "married" to the product even though there are much better DAW solutions available. I would also consider how many of the other DAWs have well surpasses PT in performance as well as ease of use and efficiency in workflows. Lastly I would research how "Protools" is often used as an adjective. Much like people use "auto-tune" or "coke" in a generic manner. In other words when someone hears a mix that sounds bad and digitized they will often say "that sounds like pro tools". Even though they have no idea what it was actually recording with.
