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?

Also, in response to some saying that mac/win32 is more powerful then linux at video captuing & editing... I think that Linux is by far a better option then either of those o/s's.

Standards, large pool of developers, and a standard/stable kernel make Linux a very good first option for video capturing & editing.

If my career were "movie making", my first option for an o/s for rendering my video would be Linux.
