The landing seemed perfectly acceptable to me,given the crosswind and short runway?

In relation to the first video of the A380 landing (Which has now been removed) Click here for vid There's been massive debate. My analysis being that the captain (An RV8 builder + flyer) did a great short field, cross wind landing. He hadn't all the narrow and short runway available because the only taxiway capable of handling this beautiful beast was not at the end of it.
The general consensus from internet debate is that tho the landing was harder than routine, it was still well within acceptable tolerances. And the 777 Captain doing the analysis is clearly an Airbus bashing Boeing fanboy.
Wish I was there to have seen it myself.......
While we didn't see the actual touchdown we were wondering what all the fuss seemed to be about. None the less seeing the video later, it certainly looked like a hard landing.
