Why on earth would anyone invest the kinda money required for a nMP setup when Apple has clearly shown the professional market the door? For 3 years they left FCP languish without an update while we remained patient and loyal. For nearly 4 years they left the Mac Pro community with seriously expensive, outdated hardware. They killed Shake, Soundtrack, Studio Pro, Final Cut, destroyed Quicktime and a myriad of other useful things we'd invested time and money in. I have no use for this ridiculous FCPX nonsense (nor does the entertainment industry), nor do I have any legitimate use for the nMP. But even if I did, after spending the last 6 months forced to waste $1000's making the financial and educational move to Media Composer, I certainly can't trust Apple with my professional future anymore; hardware OR software. Having had my post professional world burned to the ground by people who clearly don't want or need me as a customer anymore, who in their right mind would trust them again? Especially with this kind of investment? If history serves, Thunderbolt will soon go the way of FW400 and 800 and in a few years you'll have a desk covered in $1200 TB HD enclosures, $1000 PCIe expansion chassis and handfuls of $100 cables that no longer plug into anything - as well as projects you poured mountains of cash and time into that will only open in abandoned software. At any moment Apple could dictate some arbitrary hatred for another industry standard leaving us all in the lurch (See; flash, Blu-Ray, 3D, 120Hz etc). I used to eat sleep and drink Apple - but how many times can they kick me in the teeth before I have to say 'no more'? Personally the new Mac Pro is the last straw. No more Apple. No more.
