A couple of things have steered us to Adobe....

1. You gotta have photoshop, regardless. It's just too practical for too many things.
2. Legacy FCS projects can be ported to PPro.
3. Large pool of freelance opportunities for outsourcing.

Of course, we are NOT in LA, so the local ecosystem plays less into the quotient. In the Southeastern US markets we do service, we see a lot more installations of PPro for education (especially since FCPX) and that is one of the pools of labor that will be drawn on (at least here) for the next 3-5 years. It's what most folks in our region will gain experience on in any school they may be going too.

Still hold out some hope for FCPX, but it diminishes daily, given the current state of all things Apple. This will be a telling year for sure, and we'll most definitely be watching what develops in the next 12 months. I've got a feeling that time will tell whether Apple will ever be a player in this business again. While many have already "stuck a fork in it" we do hope that Apple will get their act together. The last couple of months have been dark days for this once dominant company... at least in the NLE world. Sad to see something so great screwed up so badly.
