"Why do some take it so personally? Switch over prices for Premiere and Avid are very low right now."

If you spend 12 years becoming a professional pianist and Steinway suddenly changed all the keys and told you all your old music wouldn't work on the piano -- you might take it personally too. This is why FCP editors are outraged. Apple just obsoleted a decade of their professional training and made their skills worthless going forward in professional shops that will have to change NLE's.

Mastering a new NLE takes months and years -- this was a marketable skill that kept people's mortgages paid and children in school. Now not only has the company created a product that's not usuable in many professional situations - they guaranteed that our "Steinway" will eventually stop working when apple breaks it with a future Quicktime or system update.
