All in all, I love 08, but I'm not sure if I'm missing anything important on 06...
I'm using iM since its vers2 .. iM08 was a shock.. totally different UI, different concept (library.. for video! . .. where's my 'homeserver'?) , 'internet delivery only' etc.pp.
but, your last line discribes it: for a newbie it offers 'instant gratification' .. that 'skimming' is an example for excellence in designing user interfaces..
in iM08, you can 'Export with Quicktime..'/dv-stream, or for HiDef, Apple Intermediate and use those clips in iMHD6.. so it is an option, to use iM08 as main editor and iMHD6 as 'effects machine' ... for me unusual is the the new conecpt to switch the apps for audio processing (share to Media Brwoser, then use the many tracks and effect of Garageband), I was happy for years with the 2.5 tracks in iMHD ..
depending on your needs and growing skills, I tell you, sooner or later you'll switch to FinalCutExpress anyhow
