Multimedia, AV In the past in order to make good home movies one needed either a Mac or a Windows PC. There were no good video editors for Linux in the past. Today with Jahshaka and Main Actor the things that could only be done on a Mac or a Wintel machine can now be done on a Lintel machine as well.

I didn't think the article was a troll, and while I prefer Gnome to KDE, I can understand the different aesthetic preference.

Or a suggestion that you buy a distribution with support or hire an experienced programmer to configure a Linux system for you.

"I agree with the previous poster on the lack of content. Having reached the end of the article I was like, "Where's page 2, 3, ... ?"

I did learn some new thinks in this article about Suse's ability to work with consumer electronics.

"so giving us a sample of some editing done with this new software would have been nice."

I agree. I hope the author or someone else will provide a link to a movie edited with one or more of these tools.
