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.

Show me a developer who says that he can't test his or her own code, and I'll show you a poor developer.


It's a waste of resources to have the main developer make sure that the code works on a multitude of systems. That's really the job of the testers.

With some of these one-man open source projects you can't expect the developer to make sure the code works with every distro, especially if it is multimedia software.

That seems... unusually non-critical, for you.
