Don't fear the Interface

Whilst I am very concerned about FCP X, I am not worried one bit about the simplified interface. I would urge anyone who is, to look at Apple Logic 7 then 8. Logic 8 on the surface looks paired down, but when you start using it, all the functionality is there. I think this is probably the case with FCP X.

I'm not sure about the actual color scheme of the GUI, seems a little over-saturated for the eyes to look at over long hours but hopefully it is also user-modifiable. I would tend to reduce the intensity and make the colors more pastel, I think, and the hard black to a charcoal. The green on the audio waveforms reminds me of a waveform scope's green trace lines, but that may not be the best choice for clarity. It looks sexy, I admit. But if I will spend long hours with an interface, I like to be able to adjust the viewing experience for my own taste and save it as a preset. One of the things I dislike abotu the current FCP interface is you can't upsize parts of the GUI very much. I got huge monitors, but the timeline buttons have to stay tiny? That's so 20th century:-)

I'm totally agree, it was the very first thought when I first time saw it - looks good but damn oversaturated for the daily work...

Great way to look at this!! As a Logic user, I would have to agree with you, with fingers crossed!

Apple has been successful many times in the past at simplifying things and making them more capable at the same time. I'm going to trust that they did this until I get it in my hands and see otherwise.

The move from the somewhat brainless "metallic blue" to a dark grey is very welcomed. But the sharp contrast in colors as stated might be an area or irritation. Time will tell. Hope we retain some user-control here. I hope the GUI in general is very customizable as it's always been in FCP.
