[Aindreas Gallagher] "but the degree to which people can now casually describe the multitude of live software editing reactions to any editor's action in the X timeline is weirdly interesting. It's awfully new."

lol... X does do some interesting things, which can be very disconcerting if you don't expect it. Like dragging an I or O point on a connected clip, and clips all over the timeline move out of the way in preparation... even if you're not extending the clip into their space. Release the edit point, and they all drop back into place. :-) However, my favorite undocumented "feature" (next to the secret ~ lock combo) is with clip skimming...

When skimming a clip, if you use the arrow keys (or a scroll wheel mapped to L/R arrow) skim to the end of the clip in the timeline... you can keep skimming past the end into the next clip (or into empty space). Try it! :-)
