...and even without that reason. Linux users *desperately* needs a good video editor. Myself, i am done waiting and Lightworks is the only choice. If i had to wait for kdenlive, openshot, etc to catchup / offer same features / same quality - I bet i would be waiting YEARS for anything good to arrive from any of the OSS video editors....

@xeekel: considering the direction he went, probably more like crux or LFS.
Anyhow, AFAICT the theory is that they port Lightworks themselves, and when it's ready they release the source code.
...and I live in my own house, purchased with my own income (2nd home owner) and don't live in a basement, thank you very much.

uid313 is a troll, nothing else. Please don't take his opinion as representative to all of us who prefer Free Software.
About Lightworks: I look forward to test it and follow it, especially when (if ever) it will become open source. I'm not a fan of companies using the term "open source" just to gain publicity, without understanding what it really means. Good integration of ffmpeg/ffmbc in the OSS version could undermine their commercial version for many, but again, $60/year is nothing for commercial use, and I don't mind it. I agree that Lightworks, open source or not, can help with adoption of the Linux platform.
i agree $60/year isn't much for commercial use... for me, Video editing is/was one of the only reasons left to buy (another) Mac in the future. (I use Linux more, but have a Mac too for things desktop linux sucks at and/or the odd app).
which is definitely an insult, maybe not to the degree of 'having to know 3 programming languages', but along those lines, for sure. I thought you may have been insulted by something that i said - since it _appeared_ that i was falling into some of your remarks.wow, you can cut and paste from a terminal - you deserve a metal!
honest mistake, my bad kivada
