I must admit (being a PC user through-out - edit*, Adobe and Avid) that I do not understand why the "Mac brigade" is surprised about about FCP's death and no backward compatibility - after all, through nineties they were known for treating their third party soft and hardware developers very badly by always introducing upgrades that would force a complete rewrite or just kill of products if "management" didn't like them.

Plus, Apple's future are in apps and content for the masses. There is no money in producing "also ran" packages, when you can sell the software as a premium app to the affluent consumer iphone & ipad market ;-)

However, there is plenty of tools out there that will allow you to convert FCP projects into Avid and/or Premiere Pro + if you hand over your FCP to Avid, they'll for now give you a competitive upgrade path too.

The only thing to hope for is that the competitors to FCP doesn't see this latest under-development as an opportunity to hike their prices back up - after all, as a buyer I do like competition between my suppliers. Where as a supplier, I like to sell it as high as possible - just normal market-forces at play
