I think it's rather funny that FCP X apologists always come up with the stupid "it's a database" paradigm.
First of all if it is a database it is a badly designed database which violates basic rules of normalization. By clip centric I mean that the sequence really doesn't exist as it's own entity. Everything appears to be attached as an attribute to clips. If one were designing an object oriented database that would be understood as overloading. Consider an ecommerce system. What FCPx does essentially is stuff all the order information into the inventory database.
What is really annoying, when it is argued by people who have obviously had no programming experience, is that the database functionality could exist completely in harmony with a traditional timeline interface and withjout the ridiculous magnetic timeline. Only sheer incompetence or dishonesty posits one at the expense of the other.
And non-linear means you can cut and edit any place you want without having to place slugs in as fillers. The process in FCPx is essentially linear. A timeline that is essentially always in ripple mode. This is not "innovatve", it is very old and restrictive.
