Multimedia, AV My husband and I are thinking of buying the Canon Optura Xi camcorder soon (in our opinion, the best DV camera at this range). Because I run so many OSes I always have 'embedded' in me this "thing" to only buy supported hardware by the major OSes. I am sure Optura's DV part will work fine with some Linux tools, but then what? How do I easily edit my... masterpiece and burn DVDs or VCDs via an integrated solution and send them to our families in Greece and France?

High end

Sadly, Linux does seem to lack the lower-end applications (ie, those for end-users like iMovie etc).

To be fair, I think Linux is way more suited to the high-end of things (motion picture quality stuff) than the low end. Just been watching the Two Towers DVD - not sure which OS they used to do the Gollum animation, but it was all based on KDE! :^)
