Multimedia, AV "Apple have been processing refunds for Final Cut Pro X as complaints flood in from grumpy pros - and it seems they are taking a lenient approach. Although the iTunes/App Store terms and conditions state that 'all sales are final' [ed. note: isn't this illegal?], when an application does not meet the expectations of a user, like in the case of a 59p iPhone game, Apple have been known to refund the purchase. Now it seems they are doing so with Final Cut Pro X to the tune of $299."

For interesting sake.
The three biggest players here in order of market share among movie professionals are.
(With an example of a complicated FX movie edited with it.)

Avid Media Composer $1800
"Inception" was edited with it.

Apple Final Cut Pro $300
X-Men Wolverine was edited with it.

Sony Vegas Pro 10 $600
The 2009 flick "Paranormal activity" was edited with it.

From this you can see why Apple Final Cut pro is gaining pro market share, or maybe now "was" gaining market share until recently with all the Final Cut Pro X unhappiness.
