It also is extremely similar to Vegas Pro. Its a low-risk, low-cost way to edit and see if you like the Vegas system.
Just looking at my current project, with barely any actually editing done... just putting the media on the timeline, I have 26 tracks. This is from a three camera shoot. That track limitation is pretty restrictive when you want better audio.

I played with a ULead system. I demo'ed Avid & PP. I checked out Liquid (could not stand the interface). I DL'ed Vegas 6 and it just made sense. The user interface was perfect for someone that had not been a NLE editor before. I jumped to pro because I never even considered that I might not need the many tracks, CC wheels, scripting, etc. Scripting has been a massive advantage for me (and a money earner for VASST). I got the bundled DVDA and have only ever used it for DVD authoring. I skipped V7 (no real improvements for my needs). I re-upped to V8. Not sure if I'll need the next one because i have no 64bit hardware / OS and I'm not shooting HD yet.

I don't know if there is any point in this thread. I love the Liquid interface. Which just goes to show how much it boils down to personal preference.

I totally agree. For some reason, the Liquid GUI just didn't make sense to me. I couldn't wrap my head around how to work it.

I think it also helped that I found DVInfo and there was pages and pages of great tips & tutorials available (and on VASST, and JetDV) for Vegas. I just saw the huge community and went with the NLE that seemed like it was the easiest to start right in with out the steep learning curve. Different brains work different ways

(my wife might say that my brain doesn't so much "work" as mysteriously function on nothing but coffee and oatmeal).
