I honestly don't understand all the speculative hand-wringing or the reaction that this software has been dumbed-down for the "masses" (people are even complaining that FCPX doesn't cost enough).

First, we don't know nearly enough details to do anything more than waste time on being potentially concerned about unknowns. Why would one assume that because something is simply not mentioned in the presentation that it won't be in the program? Just wait to find out. Once you know something for a fact, then complain and adjust accordingly. Nearly every advancement that was mentioned seemed quite positive to me.

And how is rewriting the software to become a 64-bit program with background rendering and the ability to use more cores and more memory a sign that FCP is being dumbed-down for an iPhone? I can barely get my iPhone to open the map application. But my MacPro is being underutilized and now, apparently, it won't be. Some of these reactions are stunning to me.
