There's been much to-do over Final Cut Pro X and rightly so. It seems as though it's an entirely new software. I haven't upgraded yet, but I'm gearing up for it and will probably make the jump at some point this year. For a bit of a preview in order to prepare for starting from scratch - yipes, I recommend checking out Micheal Wohl tutorials on macprovideo.com. If you are a MoPictive member, the tutorials are free (macprovideo/mopictive). These tutorials give you an idea of what you're in store for if you haven't upgraded yet and what to do next if you have.
