I started a new thread in the PC non-linear editing about almost the same subject...let's see what they think.

I think Jean-Philippe said to Jean-Francois: good luck on your choice of platform, let us know which one you pick and how it's going.

My pick is still going strong, I have a middle-aged G4 with FCP, use it on a regular basis. I am writing this post on a 1-year-old IBM Pentium 4 with Avid Xpress DV, Pyro Firewire card and Pioneer DVD burner. I am still waiting for my I.T. help desk experts to figure out how to make it work; i.e. be able to capture video on Firewire. I am sure this PC has a much faster processor and whatever other specs the engineering enthusiasts are all gung-ho over...however, my clients would be waiting a long time waiting for their projects to be done on this machine where meanwhile I am editing something every week on the ol' Apple.

This will probably start a flame war amongst the two factions...I've seen it all before: sailboaters vs. powerboaters, Harleys vs. "rice burners", etc. Meanwhile I have some video to edit over there on my Mac.

PS: my I.T. guys don't know anything about Macs, haven't touched them...that's OK, they don't have to.
I ain't straight outta Compton, I'm straight out the trailer. Cuss like a sailor, drink like a Mc. My only words of wisdom are just, "Radio Edit."
