It is endlessly frustrating for me and many other Linux users to have to resort to proprietary software and OSes for video editing. Reviews like this one really don't help because obviously, the author is not familiar with video editing software and lacks frames of references. The description of the OpenShot interface, for example, is largely redundant for more experienced users. It would have sufficed to write that it mostly follows Final Cut while Kdenlive is modeled after Vegas - while both use the same engine under the hood. And that Kino is obsolete for anything but one-track editing of DV material.
There are experienced writers in the FLOSS world, like Eugenia Loli-Queru, who are experienced video editors, too (and suffering under the same OS/platform dilemma, btw.). This article provides little more value than a hypothetical review of a programming language written by someone just learning programming - sorry, no offense to the author intended.
