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.

Here's a hint for you. A *user* doesn't give a flying f--k about the code or the quality of it. He doesn't give a damn about all the religious, moralistic, philosophical overtones of Open Source. What he actually cares about is if this software gets the job done or not. It is a downright ludicrous idea to give software leeway or even a free pass when reviewing it, just because it happens to be Open Source software. If you don't want your software to be judged, don't release it. It's that simple.
