Anything else to add?
QuickTime on PC is:
Fine, I never have a problem
Usually ok, I notice an occasional, less than 5x a day glitch.
It's slow and buggy but it's the format I have to work in.
I usually transcode to a non Quicktime format like MXF or MP4 before starting to edit
Usually ok, but as the project becomes more complex, I get more glitches, crashes and slowdowns.
Fine with non-QuickTime camera sources
Fine with non-QuickTime camera sources, export to Quicktime is slow/glitchy
Fine I work with native Avid media only

Have you ever tested working without Quicktime on your PC?
Either by working with native camera sources like R3D, AVCHD or Avid media files or by comparing a project with just a few clips: QuickTime vs MXF or MP4
no sorry I never had the time
I tried but didn't notice much difference
I tried but my system is not really fast enough to notice a difference
yes renders where faster, less "grey screen lockups" less stutter, more realtime performance overall
