I guess they will fix the potential security link and keep some type of QT capability in their own editing progrm's but what about the rest of the QT users in the world? I wonder if this means the end of ProRes as an industry standard.

You are correct I think, but it leaves a lot of folks out in the cold. I would hope that someone like Adobe might get the rights to keep it alive and safe for windows. I prefer other codecs but there are a lot of DSLR *.mov cameras that need QT for their NLE.

For windows users a work-a-round, is that certain programs can encode in ProRes if you need it. I use ProDad Mercalli v4 for stabilization and it can export in ProRes with low, medium, or high bit rates. Look like Photoshop can handle QT without the viewer installed also.
