Editing music scores with free software

Actually, and I will probably get yelled at for confessing this, but my music notation software is at this point the only thing that keeps me a MS Windows user. I use Finale for writing orchestral scores and Finale runs on Windows, so I need to stay with Windows. The above mentioned programs are probably indeed good software, but imho not (yet) advanced enough to write large scores, extract for a lot of orchestral instruments, each with its own specific notational habits, and let hear what you've written to track errors. Just my opinion. Any comments?
