Hi Ushere, Indeed, that went through my mind as well, the usual bugs that come with the first release :-).
On the other hand one week after I orderd my Vegas Pro 8, version 9 came out.
The result was that I felt s.tupid and bought version 9 as well. I never installed my version 8, it's still laying around somewhere. I have been using version 9 since then.
So unless Vegas Pro 13 isn't coming out within the coming 3 months I am going to order the Pro 12 :-). But I see that it's a wild guess for any.
in the scheme of things, with the heavy discount offered to early adopters, i wouldn't worry. i'd simply buy 12 (which, on the whole, is working quite reliably - discounting gpu confusion), and when 13 (doubt it will be '13') turns up, buy at discount. after all, if you're a commercial enterprise then the $250 or whatever isn't really a big deal.
The Office 2007 release of Microsoft Office has an internal version number of 12. The next version Office 2010 has an internal version of 14, due to superstitions surrounding the number 13.
Corel's WordPerfect Office, version 13 is marketed as "X3" (Roman number 10 and "3"). The procedure has continued into the next version, X4. The same has happened with Corel's Graphic Suite (i.e. CorelDRAW, Corel Photo-Paint) as well as its video editing software "Video Studio".
