Multimedia, AV I followed the hype: Reddit, Slashdot's front page, months of thumbs up on my blog and various video forums by Linux users for OpenShot. Given that I'm longing for a usable Linux video editor since 2003, and given that OpenShot version 1.0 had just been released, I naturally gave it a go, by also downloading its provided dependencies on my Ubuntu Linux 9.10.

I wonder if some of the commercial video editors for Windows can be used on WINE or worst case scenario, just use VB seamless mode and have Windows running....This (VB seamless) can also be applied on eCS for running Windows apps.

Video editor in a VM? They're not exactly light on resources.

Why not run Linux in a VM? That way you can check to see if distros like Ubuntu are still designed to be a pain in the ass for proprietary companies that make useful software like video editors.

Better proprietary app support for Ubuntu is already in the works with their integrated software store. But yeah, in general more people should accept that proprietary software is something people want to get the job done.
