Mainly because Avid is still buggy in the software-only domain and it's also bloody expensive... the crossgrade offers were OK (less good now), but once you're in, they want £500 for every dot-five upgrade. Cuts too much into the small operation's bottom line compared to an annual Adobe Cloud license considering what you get with the latter.
I'm trying to make a go with Avid here as an FCP replacement but it always manages to throw up a new type of crash I've never seen before on just about every project, despite the fact that as a tool it's very good when it is working.
