    Finally - I can't believe QuickTime has lasted as long as it has. I don't even know of Apple users who use it. I guess you could say it's... about time.

    But, I think these "experts" are taking this a little too seriously. Like really, how often are these vulnerabilities ever actually exploited? I'm vulnerable against malaria but that doesn't mean I have a reason to worry about getting it.

    Hmm, I wonder what EditShare is going to do about Lightworks. I also wonder how many people bought a pro license. If I had to guess prolly not enough to cause a class action lawsuit if they don't remove dependency.

    Have not had it installed for 10 years+. Good riddance, but it would behove Apple to fix those vulnerabilities.

    Finally, but unfortunatelly some software still needed it to process. Hated this one since 90ties.

    QuickTime is awful. I wonder how many systems out there still have it installed, and how many of those installations actually need it to be installed?
