Windows The Verge published a video demonstrating how desktop mode and Office 2013 - a desktop application - work on Windows RT, the ARM version of Windows 8. The video showed a desktop mode that clearly didn't work well for touch, and even Office 2013, which has a rudimentary touch mode built-in, didn't work properly either. It looked and felt clunky, often didn't respond properly, and even showed touch lag.

"No, I'm not wrong. You're mistaking cgi rendering with film & audio editing.

All their work is done on Blender running on Ubuntu, not just rendering but also video edition.
I'm sure if you look hard enough you can still find people using Session 8 or Pro24 as their multitrack system to record with too. It doesn't change the reality that 99% of the field doesn't use the stuff.

Sure most people don't use that, but the example I gave is a professional company, not someone playing with video stuff at home.

The point is that it's perfectly possible to produce professional quality content on Linux. Whether companies choose to use this or that tool is a different issue.
