In response to the OP:
Well, they used to have the technological edge on creative softwares (image, video and audio editing), but that's not the case anymore. And so now, all I see is restrictions to the user, when I look at how Apple does business. I wouldn't count on it delivering other than mainstream products.
I do understand your pain though, I just think that Apple's concept makes it's viability as a pro contender shaky in the long run, as Dean Roddey explained.
