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.

FOSS - be constructive or shut it

Your review had a tone of being upset - that is totally unjustified. This is code shared with you for free. Be grateful. Your degree of gratefulness can be determined by the quality of the code. I think you should feel free to offer constructive criticism, and some of the concerns you raised are valid, but bring that up from a heart of gratitude, not of indignation. Being mad at this generous contribution to FOSS proves you just don't get it, and would be better off holding your tongue.
