    Back in September it was said that the open-source Lightworks video editor would ship for Linux in Novemnber, but this has turned out to not be the case...

      At least for now there's emerging alternatives like Novacut and OpenShot.
      That's like comparing LibreOffice Writer with Gedit. OpenShot goes after the iMovie/Windows-Movie-Maker crowd, and Novacut is still only an idea. Lightworks is geared towards the same class as Avid.

        What I find even more disturbing: You bring up Novacut and Openshot which are really not very advanced projects, but don't mention kdenlive. kdenlive is in my eyes by far the best easy-to-use video editor in linux. And I think I am not alone with this opinion: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compari...#Target_market

        Still I hope Lightworks is just delayed and not cancelled.

            What about Kino? It's also a very simple to use video editor as well, much in the same vein as Windows Movie Maker

              I hope this doesn't turn out to be a wine-wrapped useless mess of a linux port like some other software projects being "ported" to linux...
