FCP was introduced in April of 1999 at NAB.

IIRC, Walter Murch's Cold Mountain was cut in 2003 on FCP Legacy and IMDB notes that as the first oscar nomination where the "sub-$1000 FCP was used.

So that would indicate that it took at least 4 solid years of development IN APPLE (discounting the work done by the Macromedia team on KeyGrip before Ubillos and the team took it to Apple) before the software developed into something "Oscar level work worthy."

No telling if X will ever again develop in the "big movie" direction - since that's such a niche part of the overall industry of editing visuals today.
