I planned on waiting for a couple months after X came out before I went and bought it. I was expecting it to be a more robust (read...professional) app when it came out, I won't lie about that.

However, even if it had everything that we wanted and expected it to be, first versions of any new software are buggy. Hence, my apprehension and willingness to wait.

Also, we all knew that any 3rd party plugins that we used regularly in our workflow would be unusable until the developers brought 64 bit versions to market. A user would have to start up FCP 7, import their video, apply the effect, and then export any video that they wanted to use with that filter in X. Whole lot of extra work. That's another factor in my decision to wait.

I'm really hoping Apple hasn't abandoned the professional editors out there. I'm willing to give them a little time to wipe the egg off their collective faces, give us some reassuring PR releases, and then back up what they say by giving us the tremendous product we were all hoping for.
