in addition to those..

LiVES (Linux Video Editing System)

but really nothing beats Final Cut....that is the benchmark all other Video Editors follow (IMHO, of course)...

Are you gonna buy final cut pro for me? AT $500 to $1,000+, depending on the version of overkill, I didn't think so. We're talking for Linux here, as in FREE SOFTWARE. The only free one that works the way it should, including firewire out back to the camcorder in raw dv, is Kino. It's definately equal to I-Movie or Pinnacle/Avid Studio DV. To author the movie to DVD, DVDStyler is a very good Linux Video Authoring tool.
