The program was great before the new update 10.4.7 now it eats all my RAM and crashes constantly... Also doesn't finish exporting. Stops at 85%

I learned video editing in Final Cut Pro 7 and I hated Final Cut Pro X for quite awhile–it was too much like iMovie on steroids for my liking–but it's grown in my esteem since then. Light years better than Adobe Premiere Pro (and also cheaper in that you might be paying thirty or forty dollars for your Adobe subscription, but if you want to access those files you have to keep paying. And paying, making Final Cut Pro X a genuine bargain). It's a great application and like most Apple software, way more intuitive than it has any right to be.

Cannot recommend FCPX: the UI is cluttered, obtuse, and slow. Media management is cumbersome, and even the most basic adjustments use OS9-like controls. Yesterday I (very sadly) removed FCPX and Motion from my computer. Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve offers much better design, interface, control, media management, and speed. Apple has given little love or support to professional users in this, and many other 'Pro' apps. I didn't abandon Apple – they abandoned me.

works like a charm on my 4GB 11" Macbook Air. Software like it should be, no bullshit, complicated workarounds, unnecessary learning curves, lets you focus on your creative stuff, not to waste time finding ways to perform simple operations.

Not a review but comment: why is the price in Europe €330 at the AppStore? Currently $299 .99= €251,40

First, $299 excludes the sales tax, while the euro price includes it.

It is too large size, even it works well.
MovieMator is much more light weight, and meets all your needs of video editing.
IT IS FREE:

Really? You compare Final Cut Pro X with Moviemator?

Your large public app collection seems devoted to the products of a single developer.

Comparing FCP X to MovieMator is like saying a small car is equivalent to a large truck for carrying goods. MovieMator may fit your needs, but certainly not of those who do more. To claim MovieMator meets all video editing needs is utterly exaggerated. Also, performance is hardly the same.

not very stable with my 2013 MacPro, Identified several ways top crash FCPX which Apple could reproduce but no fix yet... also would wish you had a feature which allows purging of unused footage
