[greg janza] "I can only see thinking in those terms when creating a sizzle type piece and needing a lot of visual tricks to be incorporated into the edit. "

I disagree. If you are having fun during the process, that shows up in the end product. If you have to hack away on a tool you don't enjoy, it WILL show up in the end. When I play the telecaster knock-off, I am having a shit-ton of fun. I think that shows up in the music (I kinda suck at guitar but still enjoy playing!).

[greg janza] "Once I start an edit all of my focus and energy is on story and virtually all of the technical recedes into the background. Whether I cut that story on Premiere, FCPX , Resolve or whatever NLE is the flavor of the month is irrelevant because all that matters in the end is the story."

This I agree with this if you combine it with my above comment. The NLE should never get in the way of the story. So the question is which NLE "stays out of the way" the most so the best story can be crafted? Maybe this is just the tool that an editor is most used to using? Could be. Inspiration comes from the work and if you are enjoying the work the product will be better.
