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.

Mark Shuttleworth has said many times that Canonical has to make Ubuntu a profitable product, and making the deployment of commercial software easier for third parties seems to be an immediate goal.


I've haven't seen any evidence that he is going to provide an app store for closed source. I also see no evidence that he plans on ending the 6 month upgrade-n-break release cycle.

Linking to a couple commercial repositories is not the same as an app store.
