Jeremy, i'm a little confused. Why is Maya here? I believe its a complete solution for Animation/Modelling/Rendering/Texturing/Dynamics in your DCC(digital content creation) work. I work on it daily. It's not a video editor.
My box has been Windows free for over two years, but I had to install it again next to Slackware recently.
Because video authoring on Linux sucks big time. I can't even capture videos from my cam via firewire. I tried everything...I beat myself up over it for days, spent hours upon hours Googling for solutions, read pages and pages of documentation, but I just couldn't get it to work. Installed Windows and everything worked beautifully right out of the box.
People keep trying to tell me that my fireware card or cable are defective, but that can't be true because they work perfectly in Windows.
None of the apps above compare to the likes of Adobe Premiere, Ulead VideoStudio, or even Windows Movie Maker. They're fun and simple to use and they make fantastic home videos with hardly any effort.
Don't get me wrong, I love Linux, I love Slackware, but when it comes to video authoring, Linux leaves me sorely, sorely disappointed.
Dang, I hate being forced to dual boot with Windows again
