One thing that is seems is a result of the app store distribution is that there is longer an "investment" in FCP licenses for freelancers/end-users.

It's $299 for this version. It will be something in the ballpark for the next (probably) and there will be no "upgrade" path - as we've seen with all the Apple "app stores."

So, if Apple does get features added to FCPX that makes it interesting for those who either a) weren't using FCP to begin with (possible the current case for a lot of FCPX target users) b) people using competing products (probably not the case with 1.0) c) people who were using FCS but did not upgrade - it's not like anyone looses by waiting.

As for Premiere as an option, if it's not one now, it will become one.

Should part of one's workflow involves Photoshop Extended, Illustrator and After Effects, it's like you get Premiere and Encore for free. That's how we got it, and that's how we started experimenting with it. We were pleasantly surprised.
