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.

So if the job of testing software is not handled by the developer (you know, the person who made the software in the first place) who has some kind of clue on 1) what is expected to work or not 2) how to debug, then whose job is it? Tech journalists/bloggers?

Obligatory car analogy: do you expect car manufacturers/engineers to test their new cars, or the consumers?

Debugging a video editor needs a fair amount of intimate knowledge with it, believe me (excluding the minor design bugs or feature requests of course).
