Everyone is sticking with 7. I haven't heard of anyone switching to X or anything else yet. :)

That's what this whole forum is about. X or not. The debate. So obviously people are switching to X or something. If you're planning on getting a MacPro to run 7, well, don't. There's really no point. 7 doesn't support GPU acceleration. It doesn't support more than 4 gigs ram. And, well, ok, you'll probably render things faster and have more rt. But that'll just cut into your billable hours anyway. Which means you'll never pay for the (likely) $4k-$8k beast Mac Tube.

You need to switch to something. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow. But using software last (minority) updated in 2009 and EOL'd in 2011 isn't a great idea. Get Premiere if you want a similar concept with a monthly fee, or get X if you want something new fresh and better in many ways, but lacking in many older ways.
