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.

The main toolbar of the app has perfect amount of icon size and whitespace. It's the rest of the app's icons that don't, e.g. under the preview window, they are big-assed for no reason. And the tabs that say "video preview" or "timeline sequence" are unnecessary. Taking space for no reason. IMO, the developer should accept 1024 as the minimum horizontal size, and move the preview buttons on the timeline toolbar. The video tracks are too thick too.

One good thing that PiTiVi has is that you're able to fully use it from the main menu, so even if you remove all of its toolbars (which don't take as much space in the first place), you can still use the app fully. Plus, it has its fullscreen mode too. Overall, very usable even on a 1024x576 screen, I was surprised about that actually when I first noticed it!
