I love how people who have "moved on" still drop in to complain.

I just sold my copy of FCS3 and picked up FCPX last month. I love it. Runs smooth as silk with large files on my 2011 3.4ghz QC iMac (with 12gb of RAM & SSD).

One thing I've learned from being an Apple customer for nearly 30 years: Apple keeps its promises.

You forgot about the fact that they *never* promise.

What I'm surprised at is that since I switched to Premiere Pro CS5, I don't ever have to render anything and everything is extremely responsive and the performance is amazing. This was not the case on FCP 7 and FCP X still requires rendering, albeit in the background. FCP X's interface is really laggy compared to Premiere, yet you can do so much more with the latter...

I already worked a lot with FCPX and found that it is really buggy. <snip>

These kinds of things upset me. Then I remember that I have a pirated copy and I feel a little better.

I already worked a lot with FCPX and found that it is really buggy. What I am surprised that those bugs didn't get addressed in this update. That is a bug that causes all Events saved on an external drive to disappear und the other one is that stabilization simply doesn't work with some type of video files. Both bugs are documented and reported by many in Apples discussion forums They cost me 4 days when trying to find fixes and workarounds. I still haven't found a way to get stabilization to work even so there are plenty of workarounds which work for some described in Apples discussion forums.

These same people bitched about the move to PowerPC.
They bitched about the iMac.
They bitched about the iPod.
They bitched about the move to intel.
They said the iPhone was going to be a huge failure.
They said the iPad was just a big iPhone.
They even bitched about OS X, if you can believe it.

How many of those did you use?

I don't remember anyone complaining about PowerPC given that it was producing faster chips than x86. Not to mention it's introduction was so long ago that it wasn't possible to get instant feedback from the majority. Unless you were at Macworld or reading a magazine.

I don't remember any complaints about the iMac either (except for the later ridiculous colors).

The Intel switch was justified since a lot of legacy software required Rosetta which was an unknown variable. The hardware was only criticized by fanboys who hated Intel out of sheep mentality. Reasonable people knew PPC was at a dead end.

OSX was also a shell on launch. It had no driver support and it took forever for software companies to switch. Not to mention it's issues running on older Macs and the fact the beta had some exceptionally stupid UI decisions from Jobs. Hard to believe they even passed design stage.
