Well, I've been using X for approx 6 months. Definitely a love/hate. It's gotten much much better. But still some scary corrupt events and beachballing episodes.
That said, when I go back to 7 I want to run right back to X.
I am sticking with it for now. I just hope I have made the right choice. The general hater-ism that's out there is scary when you think about a roadmap to the future. And the delay on new towers and iMacs was unsettling to say the least.
On the plus side, the LA event is promising (hope springs eternal) and the new MBPr demonstrates once again that AAPL is at the top of their game when they focus. And that is indeed a machine pro can use--as a laptop machine.
SO, a real mixed bag. Lots of ups, lots of downs. I guess that makes it fun and interesting, right?
Hey your a trooper for trying ;)
I get a chance to teach the app to newbies and seasoned legacy users.
So its a challenge when the problems come up but most have shrugged it off as "growing pains".
Sure its not our main NLE at my shop but its still used daily for a lot of other things that dont require XDCAM finishing or any older output.
Just another tool in our arsenal and a cheap one to boot ;)
