[Paul Jay] "Im tired of the Apple isnt for Pro whining by professional whiners."

[Craig Seeman] "As am I. If Apple isn't in a given niche, somehow all the other professional uses don't count..."

I believe that Apple's recent behavior in the professional space has been poor [link], and I do fear that they have lost their commitment to professional markets. I think that for a while, Apple used to supply products built for professional use, but now they supply products that professionals can use -- and I think that's a subtle but important difference.

However, since you gentlemen maintain that Apple is actively building for professionals, please indulge me in a thought experiment:

If you didn't already have Apple hardware and FCP7, would you really be buying iMacs and FCPX for all your professional work today?

Would you say that Apple's March 2012 post-production offering has more or fewer significant gaps than Apple's March 2011 (or better yet, Apple's March 2010) post-production offering?
