[Bill Davis] "What else could Apple have done given the reality of the situation surrounding FCP?"

They could have ported FCP7 to 64bit, using the redesign to optimize performance, clean out the bugs, organize the menu's etc.

They could have brought out something like FCPX, called it something else, while continuing support for and even updating Legacy, announcing that X would be the future but they weren't throwing out the work flows of their current users.

They could have spun-off / sold off Legacy while throwing their energy into X.

They could have done a lot of things. They had plenty of options, many of which would have made both you and me happy. As is their right, they chose a path that didn't. I don't have to still kiss their ring for doing so do I?

And while you make a good argument for why Apple did what they did, you make no allowances for why many of their users felt screwed by them for doing so. I'm not sympathetic to Apple's reasons when they are at cross purposes to my needs.
