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.

I've haven't seen any evidence that he is going to provide an app store for closed source.

I was pretty sure I had read it somewhere but alas, I can't find anything right now. I don't know.

I also see no evidence that he plans on ending the 6 month upgrade-n-break release cycle.

I guess that's where LTS releases should come in. As with any other OS, the user is responsible of making sure that all the software they use is compatible with a newer version before upgrading. This even holds true for Windows, probably the OS with most stable API of all.

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

Agreed.
