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.

and all anyone can do is complain. I have been waiting since 2006 to edit my wedding video in linux (having exhausted all of the other video editing options) and can finally say that I've done it with OpenShot. It's not perfect, but can anyone here say that this isn't the best video editor for linux?

It has developed at such a rapid pace, and all by one person, that I can't believe this article wasn't skewed in the positive a little. Oh wait, it was Eugenia that wrote it. She loves to hate Linux video editors. She is perfectly entitled to her thoughts, but I can't help but get an extremely negative spin from her.

The very first time I used OpenShot, I emailed John and thanked him for doing a great service to the free software world. I suggest anyone that likes OpenShot to do the same. I can't wait to see where the project goes from here!
