This $4000 iMac may be running Final Cut Pro 2 and OS9 on it.
It would be better putting OS X and Final Cut Pro 3 on it, for the BEST stability. Even then, Final Cut Pro 2 +OS9 should be stable, that is if it has enough ram, etc.
OS 9 sucked for stability on my computers. But untill I upgraded, all has been way better!
edit: also adobe premier and apple FCP are different programs.
