Pinnacle was the second NLE I used (after Windows Movie Maker). I liked it lots, especially the built in transitions, but the version I had crashed all the time (don’t remember which version – was 2004).

The I found Sony Vegas Movie Studio (was called ScreenBlast Movie Studio then) and fell in love. Within a year I moved up to the Pro version and have never regretted the decision.

Yes, 11 is buggy (which is why I save often and still have 8 Pro installed as well) but I anticipate it settling down by year’s end. I must say the render speeds are great (on my newish box) and I am just starting to experiment with the bundled NewBlueFX Pro Titler (which is amazing).
