[Aindreas Gallagher] "fwiw - according to Phillip Hodgetts - there are twenty people left in Pro Apps."

Which is fine. As I've often said, if it take one woman 9 months to have a baby, how long should it take 2 women?

The size of the team of coders is important if you're trying to be all things to all users - since you have to write and adapt code all over hell and back to keep the zilion rooms you've created in order and interacting.

If you've got a nice tight app like X, you just add well-conceived modules (like their multicam implementation from 10.0.3) and leave the rest of the suite largely intact.

All I'm hoping for is a couple of geniuses working on something useful in the audio module. Maybe something useful in extra color grading hooks, a nice set of I/O calls so that multiple users can make it a little more a "team sport" for the larger shops - then a LOT of work in database I/O so that X increasingly talks to and from the outside world like any smart database should.

Get that modest list done, and I'll be delirious for the rest of my career.
