Stability is the one reason I have stuck to Kino for my very modest editing needs. I have yet to get the video equivalent of "hello world" out of any of the others. The largest drawback in Kino is that it only edits files in the DV format (and supposedly HDV although I have not personally used that), anything else has to be first transcoded into DV (happens automatically but takes a lot of time and space).
Maybe the simplification of the implementation that this limitation allows is one reason for its stability?
Probably I will give this OpenShot a try, but if it eats my editing, it's back to Kino. Crashing is worse than lack of features.
