Use both. NLEs are tool sets, each of which has great features. Our studios have at least two NLEs on each computer, and two or three DVD authoring programs. Which one to use depends on what the job is.
I’ve used Vegas since version 4.0 and currently use version 8.0, for example, but have never used the Sony DVD authoring software because I’m well served by another program. Vegas 11.0 is reportedly very buggy and prone to crashing for many users; still, I think Vegas is one of easiest to learn and use and most flexible NLEs on the market.
