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.

Not that I am defending this article, but

"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. "


Trouble is, for this application (movie making) Linux is about as mainstream as it gets. Maybe not for home movie applications, but in Hollywood, linux is becoming the workstation of choice.
