As does the current Pogle, which has all the features you just described 
(although being a controller, it doesn't have things like Power Windows or 
color correction at all, for that matter, unless you add their DCP or a 
supported color corrector) including lightning fast operation (all 
operations short of disk saves are nearly instantaneous), ability to add 
markpoints in the middle of the list (automatically, if you use a shot 
detector), simple changes of cuts to dissolves, far better editing 
capabilities, and list value ripples that are practically instantaneous 
(even for tape to tape lists that are >800 events). I must confess that I've 
never been a DaVinci fan for anything other than their windowing 
capabilities and "unified corrector" concept.
