[Craig Seeman] "BTW for the very reason is why I have no more trust in Avid (or any other company for that matter). Having dealt with the facility panic when Avid supposedly was leaving the Mac market. Suddenly, the season related work was a crisis budget decision that we had only a very short window to make a determination."


To be fair here, the reason Avid was dropping support for the Mac was because, once again, Apple had decided on it's own what it's users needed: which at that time was fewer slots. Avid needed more slots than Apple was going to give them on a closed system. Who's fault was that? Avid was already in a situation where it was having to develop expensive expansion chassis and all manner of work arounds to get their product to work on Macs.

I put the blame firmly on Apple for that debacle. Just as I put the blame on Apple for the lack of Flash support on their iThingies. Apple periodically gets a holier than thou attitude and it's up to the users and the vendors to remind them that they don't operate in a freaking vacuum.
