It would be facinating to see the report. But what we do know is that Apple has 52% of NLE market share, which is slightly up from the 2010 number from the same source (49%). This is new installs, mind you, not installed base -- the vast majority of those new new installs have to be FCP X, particularly to account for the other tidbit we're given, that there are now more editors using FCP X than with FCP 7.

The real takeaway from this isn't the specific number, it's the illustration that number provides of how out of touch a lot of the discussions here are. People in these forums are mostly focused on a couple of specific segments of the professional video editing market -- and not even very large segments. There's a much wider world of editing out there, and if history is any guide, what happens in that world is very likely to significantly impact high-end market segments in the long run -- possibly the not-so-long run, given how fast Apple is adding higher-end features.
