[Andy Neil] "be a quality high-end NLE at the end of year 2, but the stigma will last longer than that.

I have to disagree with the end of this.

The "stigma" will last precisely until somebody does something different enough and cool enough with it and that supplants the old meme.

This is the modern era.

Short attention span theater land.

Things are cool until they aren't. And what wasn't can become cool again in a few days.

Ultimately, what becomes cools are things that satisfy people.

If X on a MacBook Pro satisfies an editor who wants to cut their extreme skiing GoPro clips from fireside at the chalet - and comes to understand that with proper planning, they can turn out a killer promo video for their boss and upload it to the web between drinks - then game over.

None of what any of us says will really matter if the tool solves real problems for real users. Even if those problems aren't the same ones you and I have.
