Bright Future with FCPX and Thunderbolt for Pro use?

The only way that FCPX makes sense to me is if Apple is being really clever and bold, they have always been very innovative and ready to make extreme moves that seem crazy at first. Like abandoning the floppy. OK I show my age here. Now they are dropping DVD's on many products.

My guess is that Apple will be abandoning the tower computer and only be making Imac style computers in the future, no PCIe or internal additional bays. This is only speculation, but this makes sense to me.

I think everything external will be Thunderbolt in the future. It is very fast and versatile and according to apple replaces PCI and display port.

"That’s because Thunderbolt is based on two fundamental technologies: PCI Express and DisplayPort." Quote from Apple.

"To connect a DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, or VGA display, just use an existing adapter." Quote from Apple.

It already works with Matrox MX02 and Blackmagic UltraStudio 3D.

And it will be RAID storage as well.

Promise SAN Link Fibre Channel adapter
Sonnet Allegro FireWire 800 adapter
Sonnet Presto Gigabit Ethernet adapter"
Quote from Apple.

If I am right then this is really cool and makes sense.

Apple is just lowering the cost and simplifying the Pro Video editing situation.

Remember when you had to change all your NUBUS cards to PCI based cards. Well I think this is the way of the future.

With this in mind I feel very positive about the new FCPX.

And I bet we will have XML or similar import/export real soon from Apple or 3rd parties.

What is more I really like the database based media management, and the new timeline is very promising and fast.

Lets hope I am right.
