[Herb Sevush] "If "one-click" installation is such a big deal, other vendors will follow suit. "

Adobe and Avid NLE products are presently packaged, priced and implemented in a way that makes them impossible to sell either though the Mac App Store or Microsoft's forthcoming Metro app store.

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

[Herb Sevush] "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?"

The above two arguments are analogous to an argument one sometimes sees in geek circles that Apple is doing things all wrong with the iPad -- that if you were to take a 'real' desktop operating system and graft on some touch features, you'd have something more powerful and consequently 'better'. The massive success of iOS suggests this isn't true -- that the market values Apple's simplicity and focus. In many respects, FCP X is the iOS of the NLE market.
