[Walter Soyka] "I respectfully disagree.

No amount of PR could have papered over the unexpected workflow-shattering product cancellations and discontinuities we've seen in the last couple years.

Apple had been establishing trust from about 2000 to about 2010, and then they broke it -- now they have to establish it again -- with products, not PR. "

Products first- but I think PR is important. I think FCPX was a PR disaster more than anything else. I've stated my case before that if Apple had approached the FCP7 to FCPX transition more like the one from OS9 to OSX,I don't think you would have seen nearly as chilly a reception. I'm sure some would still have knee-jerked at the iMovie-esque interface; but a delineated transition period from one to the other, rather than an abrupt EOLing of FCP7 would I think have jangled a lot less nerves.

Thanks for the DF link. That's good reading.
