As a long…..long time Finale user (I think I used it with version 2.5 back in the 90s), Finale is a solid notation program. While there are some great free ones, like musescore, that have gotten popular, Finale is really for people who care what their music looks like. And the ability to make your music look good is important. No one wants to waste time trying to figure out bad notation.
I’m probably going to update to Finale 26 soon.
