Multimedia, AV I followed the hype: Reddit, Slashdot's front page, months of thumbs up on my blog and various video forums by Linux users for OpenShot. Given that I'm longing for a usable Linux video editor since 2003, and given that OpenShot version 1.0 had just been released, I naturally gave it a go, by also downloading its provided dependencies on my Ubuntu Linux 9.10.

From what I've seen from it so far, is that it's progressing in the wrong way: two preview panels are old-school. Also, I don't think I can wait another 5 years for it become stable (since that project is still in its infancy). So I don't consider it a contender.

As far as I'm concerned, if you want to do some real work with video editing, even just as an amateur-but-serious videographer, you still need to use Windows or Mac. It's unfortunate, but I see *useful* video editing on GNU/Linux as the final frontier for the platform. I'm still "on the waiting".
