I'm not sure it's a matter of CS6 being better. PProCS5.5 was pretty good. PProCS6 was more a UI overhaul than anything else. The Adobe approach is simply a closer fit into the FCP "legacy" workflow than Avid is. It's easier to swap FCP 7 for PProCS6 by simply replacing one cog with another. That's mainly due to XML and the easier ability to natively deal with QT files. Moving to either FCP X or Media Composer means a lot more than just changing edit software.

Right now there's a lot of push-back from the editing community. Apple currently seems to be in a mode to adjust to customer and enterprise pressure. For example:
