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.

There was no "negative spin" in my review. It was objective, 100%. If anything, I'm LONGING for a stable video editor, for years now! My husband was sitting next to me, researching some geohashing stuff while I was testing the app. He could see the freezes too, he could see the crashes, he could see me dropping to a text screen in order to kill the frozen X11. So no. I didn't dream up the instability, neither I live in a different quantum dimension where version 1.0 had not been released yet. What I wrote in the review, is 100% truth. No negative spin, no under-the-table sentences or meanings. For those who know me from the olden OSNews days, or even just read my blog, they know well that I'm a straight-up person, even if they might not always agree with me.

And the truth is, the thing is super-unstable. It's unusable. This project is definitely not "the first good video editor for linux", as you wrote in your title. Don't believe the hype. So I would appreciate it if you're a bit more careful with your accusations.
