[Walter Soyka] "I half-agree with this. FCP7 is a dead platform with no future, and I think it's foolish to build a business on a hopeless platform.

On the other hand, some editors have a very good reason to stay with FCP7 for the time being -- it does have some unique features and strengths, and it may help them provide value to clients and earn money better than anything else on the market."

For the record, I have an enterprise customer who needs to buy 30 new seats of FCP legacy right now. This station has sister stations all over who use FCP, and they have to do the same. It's quite a serious situation for them.

As I've been trying to drum through Bill's thick skull, many businesses have huge investments in infrastructure, workflow, and trained personnel. He just doesn't get the seriousness of it, and he tries to casually dismiss it all with with the stroke of a pen (keyboard) or a humorous quip.
