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 API is annoying, but hardly limiting. It's actually considerably more powerful than what you get on Unix. Check out WMI, for example, and see how much it provides. The problem, of course, is that it is a bit of a pain to use because you have to create objects, pass weird initialization strings to them, etc. But that's a very surface problem that, for larger projects, could be handled with a convenience library.
