[Gary Slickman] "This is such a passionate, evocative forum that stimulates thinking about a myriad of pertinent topics on so many levels. Marketing strategy of the hardware/software providers, editing techniques and philosophies, technical issues that delve deep into the inner workings of the “man behind the curtain”, adversarial relationships are only a few of the themes that have led to high energy, enlightening and entertaining, exchanges."

Yes, I wholeheartedly agree here. But that seems to be the purpose of a debate forum, no? The other Cow forums you mentioned aren't.

[Gary Slickman] "Whether they are right, wrong or misunderstood, no company gets the juices flowing like Apple."

Now this, I have to disagree with. IMO, it may be more fair to say "no company gets MY juices flowing like Apple." I've felt for a long time that FCP users (and Mac users in general) have needed to 'get out' a bit more and understand the wider world of post production. Apple certainly is innovative, but no moreso than Autodesk, Avid, Adobe, Pixologic, Nextlimit, Maxon, Triple Squid Software Design, Anderson Technologies or any of the few thousand other hardware and software vendors that service the creative community. Want to see passion, debate and theater? Go to and suggest that The Epic X is a desperate attempt make a true digital cinema camera that can compete with Arri's Alexa. :-)
