    Is it cool to download this free? I'm not into pirating but there are several free downloads such as cnet which I thought was "kosher". Anyone know the real deal? I'm ignorant.

    There used to be a free version called ProTools Free, but it hasn't been updated or supported in many years.

    There is a new free version called ProTools First, but it's not out yet:

    There is no free version of Final Cut Pro. The only legitimate version is available in the Mac App Store. It's extremely cheap for professional video software.

    If you want free, use iMovie.
    There is a legitimate free 30 day trial version for FCPX available here.
    (Fully functional trial, not crippleware, but never let actual facts get in the way of a good Apple bashing opportunity...)


    There is currently no virus out in the wild for Mac OS X, but if you want to deliberately f* up your Mac, installing "free" (= pirated) versions of commercial software is a great way to do it.

    Nothing easier than to write a sudo rm -R ~/Documents or similar script, paste a Final Cut icon on it, advertise it as "Free Final Cut Pro" or "Final Cut Pro [k]" and hope some fool will fall for it....
