^The majority of Apple's London announcement--support for plug-ins, export capabilities, etc.--were expected. The lack of backward compatibility with FCP7 projects is also not a surprise. Anyone who still expects or demands it has not figured out that one is a square peg, while the other a round hole. The only thing that was a welcome surprise is the continuation of FCP7 sale to enterprise customers. That should keep edit shops from immediately switching to Avid or Adobe, although frankly, I don't see why anybody would switch all of a sudden. FCP7 has not been updated for over a year, yet people didn't switch during that time. It will continue to be productive for another two years, at least. By then, FCP X would've surged past puberty.
