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.

Believe it or not, this is not my job to do. My "job" here is to review software...

Your job? You're a self-proclaimed videographer... If anything, I thought you had a genuine interest in advancing the state of video on Linux, if not in all-things-video, and not write pseudo-excuses-to-yourself-so-you-can-sleep-better. You job??? **Sigh**

"But I won't be doing this forever and for everyone. "Patience has borders", we say in my motherland."

While generally I like your reviews, not sure I like your personality... you sound like such a selfish prick sometimes... Most open source projects usually ask people to give something back, be it bug reports or whatever... If everyone would think the way you do, there would be no Linux...

And the way you paint yourself... First you say it's not your job, then you show how nice you are for filling bug reports... But you not gonna be nice forever, is that right? Jeezz... Talk about egos...

Should the developer talk like that too? I'm writing this free software, but actually, I'm not gonna be nice forever you know?

Anyway, give the guy a break... He is a legend... I am too a videographer (whatever that means), and I'm too stuck with Vegas, despite hating Sony, and use Linux for all my other computing needs, but at least I can appreciate a fellow human being trying his best and giving something out for free... You're acknowledgement of his hard work didn't change the overall bad tone of this article, and the score of 3/10, really, should go to YOU!

Anyway, feel free to mod me... I still like reading your articles, just wish your weren't such a one-sided rebel-toned prick sometimes...
BTW, I also don't like your fetish for Canon products, but that's a subject for another "rant" ;)

If someone releases an application as a finished 1.0 version, criticism is to be expected. Being open source is no excuse for subpar quality. Eugenia's review was very fair and detailed.
