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.

No offense, Roberto, but this article does read more like a "why SuSE is better distro". Since when did the configuration of YaST or compiling have to do with the actual functions of the video editing programs themselves?

Your article, while I did learn a little more about the video editing/capture programs available for Linux, should have been more focused on the pros and cons of the different programs with examples. Also, screenshots are a must for this type of article... I would like to see how allegedly non-GNOMEish it is, as well as the layout of the programs so that I may judge for myself.

I personally appreciate your effort though. I did learn a thing or two myself, as I am planning on getting a digital camcorder sometime in the future.
