[Bill Davis] "[Oliver Peters] "It's my recollection that the internet-wide negative comments started at the SuperMeet reveal"


And the Supermeet reveal was months before the product was ACTUALLY put on sale so anyone could assess - hands on - how It might function.

And who was responsible for deciding to reveal FCPX at the supermeet? Did somebody come in and hold a gun to someone's head, or was it Apple's decision? According to you Apple's role-out was great and the blame for the bad PR should be put on some secret conspiracy to do damage to X that was beyond anyone's control.

How about acknowledging that Apple had some negative feedback from editors before the meet, they decided to do a public reveal anyhow, when some negative buzz was generated by the supermeet reveal they chose to do absolutely nothing to contain it except announce on day 1 of FCPX's availability that legacy was DOA and no longer available for sale (a decision they rescinded, on the down low, a few weeks later.)

Everything that happened to X was the result of Apple's marketing and, in 20-20 hindsight, it was all predictable. There's nothing "curious" about stupidity, it is the ready explanation for the world we live in.
