[James Culbertson] "I think by now most of us know that this kind of talk is code"

At this point it's all water under the bridge.

I think the best way to look at it is there's the base of the tree where the concepts of tape cutting and film cutting were combined to envision modern NLEs. Avid/Adobe/Media100/EMC/etc all went in a very similar direction - one branch of the tree.

In creating FCPX, the development team went back to the bottom of that trunk to start up into a different direction/branch. As a result you now have two large branches that diverge a bit from that common base, but still with a ton of similarities. Blackmagic has attempted to embrace both with the Cut Page + Edit Page in Resolve 16.

We'll see how well that works in practice.
