"These articles and (occasional) comments on this forum are building a bigger and bigger disconnect between the supposed FCPX user share and the reality sitting in front of me every day. "

That's a good point. As far as the small sample of those I run into on the floor here at NAB, I have yet to encounter anyone who's expressed any interest in using FCP X for their workflows. I'm probably more willing to give it the benefit of the doubt than most. Even those who like it a bit, don't seem to see how it can actually work on the projects they cut. Granted, many of them have it, but really have never used it, but I think that sentiment is pretty common.

It really feels to me that X is moving into a similar niche as EDIUS or Vegas. Both good tools, but not in the top tier of the specific users that go to this show. OTOH, when I see the folks that are covering the show with their own web video segments, X is actually the perfect tool for them to take their HDSLR-shot segments, cut and get online.

I don't think it's an either-or proposition. X is perfectly suited to be ONE of the tools you use, not the ONLY tool.
