[Aindreas Gallagher] "Interesting article on how hilariously incompetent Apple are at managing databases."

The article isn't about databases per se, it's about iCloud's ability to transparently sync object graphs between multiple instances of an application across devices. Providing this as a generalizable system-level service is new, ambitious, and it's honestly not surprising that it's taking some time to work out the bugs.

[Aindreas Gallagher] "The company has simply not expressed any desire to fix Core Data syncing."

The article that contains this quote also notes that many bugs have been fixed. I guess they magically fix themselves with no work on Apple's part?

Core Data syncing is quite important to the multi-device computing model that seems to represent Apple's vision of the future. The idea that Apple intends to neglect is is not especially credible.

[Aindreas Gallagher] "Oh it does? it's all based around core data? "

You're mixing up Core Data, which has been around for eight years now and is quite solid, with Core Data syncing, which is only about 18 months old and still has some bugs to be worked out. FCP X does not presently use any of Core Data's syncing features, although it's possible they could, in the future, form the basis for collaborative editing capabilities.

Nice try with the FUD, though.
