[David Mathis] "This does benefit a small post house but now there are those that have no real skill set. All of which is why I chose to say "disruptive to the pro market". All of which begs the question, "Do we win or do we lose?""

IMO, we most likely lose in the long run. Software development is difficult and expensive. Companies that make applications for a living have to charge what it costs to make their applications, hardware companies that subsidize their software, don't. Larger companies can afford to hold out and find other ways to compete, smaller developers can't. So, what's the future? Who knows, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if all creative software became subscription or subsidy-ware(tm), with a handful of poorly supported freeware apps. Hopefully, I'm wrong. :-)
