^very interesting =).

probably not good enough for real live productions... but for the casual/enthusiasts... this is free except your investment in time.

Been there, done that...
Over the years I have played around with a lot of Linux stuff, right now I even have a dual boot Linux/Windows box. I tested all of the software available for video editing, and pretty much agree with the author - Linux [as in "the free Linux"] has to grow up before it can be used for serious video editing. Although the best of the pack, KDEnlive is buggy, crashes a lot, while all the others are rather primitive NLEs.

By the way, for those of you who like to experiment, KDEnlive is available as a full Linux OS on a CD (might be DVD, don't remember for sure) or thumb drive - plug it into your computer, restart, and play around, then shut down and you're back to your computer without touching anything on it.

What surprises me is that the author does not even mention another one, Blender. Although initially a graphics editor, Blender has come a long way for video editing. Initially developed for Linux, it's now available for OSX and Windows as well.

Their first 64-bit version for Windows is out in apha version. The good news is, again, there is nothign to install, just download it to a folder and start it from there, under Windows.

Also missing from the review is OpenShot, a promising new Linux editor.
