The majority of grumbling was A) omg they've killed the app I was heavily invested in, B) the new thing looks a bit like iMovie and doesn't yet do everything the old version did (so don't upgrade yet) and C) omg they've changed the editing workflow a bit and I don't like change, change is bad.
It was only B) really, though. They released a "lite" version masquerading as an upgrade.
They completely rewrote a very complicated application. They didn't suddenly stop the old one from working. They made a mistake in pulling the original final cut from the stores (a decision they quickly reversed), and that's it. Its not trivial to rewrite a complex application and include absolutely all features in the first edition. Right now it represents a massive upgrade. Have you ever actually used it or are you just rehashing some old and now irrelevant internet gripes?
