i like premiere, its a nice addition to any good set of chosen tools.
but in my opinion its far from being a main cutter.

its hard for me to believe that any improvement Adobe brings to PP6 can really bring it to a sufficient level, I'd be glad to be proved otherwise.

timeline control, trim tools, advanced editing options and controls, unifying codec, markers, interface, clarity, media management, smart user settings, elegant bins, shared environments... i could go on

it would practically take a rewrite.

a good video app is not necessarily a good editing app
Avid is an amazing editing app and mediocre video tool
FCP7 was really close to be both... that's why everybody loved it so much.

premiere seems to overlook the core art and craft of cutting, and structuring story out of segments. instead focusing on a myriad of new features and flashy gizmos.
if you work long form narrative an use PP, you're either a bad editor, or very badly informed.

and yet, Premiere is so cool to showcase and make nifty videos about,
that so many people today actually see it as a valid replacement.

take a look at Lightworks... no big loud marketing department, but a decent cutter, and its free, and open source... and even historic :)

all that said,
i use PP5.5 constantly in my workflows, there are things that it does best. i love Adobe as a company.. and i look forward to the next CS and the improvements it will bring.
