[Chris Kenny] "FCP X is available for one-click App Store installation at a dramatically lower cost than competing applications. It's easier for new editors to learn. "

So is Imovie. I didn't see it eating up market share. If "one-click" installation is such a big deal, other vendors will follow suit. Costs are going down across all NLE applications. If cost is really the major factor than Lightworks will be the market champ, it's free. And don't forget that PPro with an educational discount is under $500.

As for ease of use, we shall see.

[Chris Kenny] "It's built around file-based acquisition and focuses heavily on Internet deliverable formats "

So is PPro. If "one click" Youtube is a big hit, every NLE on the market will adapt it, it's not like it's difficult technology.

[Chris Kenny] " Its UI is based around Internet-age taxonomy -- relationships and tagging."

Since I don't what this means, but it's got big words like taxonomy in it, I'll just have to agree with you here.

[Chris Kenny] "It's designed for a world of speedy laptops that can connect to Thunderbolt storage fast enough to handle even uncompressed HD."

In what way is it optimized for laptops more than any other NLE? Do you mean PPro on a MBpro can't use a TBolt raid?

[Chris Kenny] " FCP X is from a different world than competing NLEs. But that world isn't the consumer market. It's the future. And it's arriving fast."

Oh please, spare me.
