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?

First, someone said LVE looked like iMovie.

It doesn't! It's a total ripoff from Pinnacle Studio though! And Studio works really bad on its own so I think a clone would probably be even worse ;)

As for LOTR being done on Linux vs Maya? One on top of the other of course. But I bet most artists don't even notice Linux. Maya is such a beast, more like a world in it self, that most people just try to understand the DCC package and leave the OS to the IT guys. Plus, this big studios (ILM, Pixar, Weta, Digital Domain, etc) have a lot of their own tools (stuff like Massive from Weta or Nuke from DD, that just went comercial), use pretty much every DCC package, a lot of different OS's and hardware, so it's irrelavant to use them at pissing contests.
