[Walter Soyka] "I think one thing that hasn't changed since last June is that a lot of people are still making up their minds about FCPX without really using it. There's really a lot there to like, but it's not for everyone."

That's certainly true, but I don't blame people for that. Its not people's responsibility to work deep into a product that goes against there basic assumptions of how a product should work. I've hung around and have been able to learn a lot of the good things about X, but thats because I'm interested in the dynamics of such things. Had I not been, I would have been gone with nothing more than the locked-down interface and lack of tracks.

[Walter Soyka] "If Apple had launched with 10.0.3 or 10.0.4, we might all be having a different conversation."

That is also quite true. If it had launched at 10.04 the question would be about "Do I want to use it?" and not "Is it true that its impossible for me to use?" I might not like Roles, for instance, but they do provide a viable option to tracks. X has to live down a whole half year of people screaming "I can't even use it if I wanted to! How am I supposed to make stems!", and "I can't even monitor the dang thing."
