"Different But Better ... so far"
Powerful Media Management section that enables you to find, edit and tag your media files, especially helpful in large projects with different shots. Overall faster and definitely background rendering.
The interface overall will require editors with optimised workflows based on previous version to rethink media management and get used to a more iMovie interface. Some third party plugins may not work.
Highly recommend to give it a go without replacing your current setup. You can run 2 versions in parallel without a problem. You may want to learn FCPX on smaller and easier projects first to learn as you go. There is a learning curve and some features may even be invisible at a first look. It is a disruptive approach that I think will benefit the editor down the track. It is worthwhile to start with this version and get into learning the details of this version, as I expect that future version will build upon and surely improve other things as we go.
