Professional-quality DAW and Editing software from Image-Line. Has a large number of features, most notably ease-of-use and a large number of supported VST Plugin formats. Can export to .mp3, .mp4, .wav, and .ogg.
Most users say that the main selling point of FL Studio is the workflow and interface, which is geared towards putting the user's creativity first.
All native (FL) instruments and other functions (edit, render, etc), and most VST's.
What does not
Loading a project while the current project is playing causes a crash. Bridging VSTs and select other instruments works for a while if the UI is not shown, but crashes eventually, and cannot be loaded after a save.
What was not tested
Some drag-n-drop functionality, wine-asio, Edison.

The FL Studio UI can sometimes go haywire if you workspaces in your desktop environment - the audio engine works and events are handled (for example, space still plays/pauses the project) but the UI is frozen.
