[tony west] "Some wonder if X will be around in the future. When everyone is sitting around the
TV watching it on the Super Bowl, I kind of think it will be.


Having at one time been an editor of sports opens myself, that often had to go up to "the bird" within seconds of a big play, there's no doubt about it, FCPX is vastly superior to FCP 7 for creating short, template-based opens and highlight reels that need to go on-air almost instantly. In fact, I wish I'd had X when I was at Fox Sports.

However, while your sports scenario is in fact one of those that happens to be absolutely ideal for X, it doesn't change or negate the fact that X is not at all ideal for many users and for many other types of editing. Your endorsement is terrific and 100% valid, but it's not living proof or the last word that X is perfectly wonderful; it just shows that it is great for some, which is exactly what even X's harshest critics have been saying all along.
