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.

Show me a developer who says he doesn't produce bugs and I'll show you a liar. In any software development process, there is a developer who tests his software and there is a test team who tests the software against various gtk/xlib versions and patches. One developer can't possibly spend 1 year testing his software, since in this one year there are 2 Ubuntu releases and I don't count all the possible software and hardware combinations that can make the software break.
Now if you want stable software just don't use Ubuntu. Use Debian stable, slackware, or red hat instead. At the very least, use Ubuntu LTS. If you want the latest and the bleeding edge, you are asking for testing.
