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.

Nice slam at the end to people who don't know how/don't want to know how to compile. That's the elitist attitude keeping linux out of the main stream.

1) I didn't see anything in Roberto's comments about compiling that came across as condescending. And there is a wider variety of up-to-date software and options available for those who learn how.

2) The article was written for readers, many of whom are developers and techies more experienced than the average Joe User.
