video editing on linux

Hi everyone,
I am becoming more and more dissatisfied with Microsofts OS and would really like to move to running one of the Linux distros on my desktop and laptop. I know Open office and The GIMP are fantastic alternatives to office and photoshop.... but can anyone recommend an alternative to Adobe Premiere Elements for editing video???
Apart from the hassle of setting up my USB Speedtouch 330 modem (which I understand is not very straight forward) needing a good video editing prog is the only thing stopping me from diving in to a Linux based OS...... can anyone suggest a suitable prog???
