I don't think you can count keystrokes or even "clock" compare specific functions in many cases.

There are people who have significant experience doing similar projects repeatedly with other NLEs who feel they are getting done ahead of deadlines on longer projects.

Short of someone doing the same project twice (and for obvious reasons even if one were to do that, it wouldn't work as a comparison), doing similar projects on different NLEs can give one person a personal comparison based on their own skill set. One can't even say it's "universal" because these examples are limited to an individual's typical project type (and style).

FWIW I don't see as many people moving from FCP7 to PremierePro or Avid saying they are significantly faster. Maybe because they are significantly similar and people are only making marginal changes in workflow.

FCPX forces a rethink and, for a time, one may be slower…. until "the lightbulb goes on…" There's no "lightbulb" for most people switching to the other NLEs because there's only minor changes in circuitry.
