Easy, powerful, stable: Pick two with OpenShot 1.3

Easy, powerful, stable: Pick two with OpenShot 1.3

I have to speak up strongly against such an arrogant self-absorbed poster like you are.

You seem to think of yourself as a professional, but that's clearly not true; otherwise you would understand that readership of LWN.net is a bunch of folks with widespread areas of interest and knowledge. Just as many reports about distributions (or, in my case, document publishing) or other application tools are low-level for those deeply in-the-know, there are even more readers who are *not* as proficient in these areas and like the introductionary presentation of a tool that they didn't know before.

If you had written such a review, those readers probably wouldn't have understood a single word. "Final Cut", "Vegas" -- what the h*ll? I have never heard of those programs, and I'm working in IT since 30 years. It would *not* have sufficed to do just such a comparison; to think so is mind-blowingly ignorant of reader's expecations here.

So, I'm glad that Zonker is writing as an author for LWN.net, and not you. This article *does* provide value; maybe not for you personally, but for us other readers. I've go an advice: If you read an article that is too low-level for you, but doesn't have factual errors, JUST SKIP IT. Posting derogatory remarks is a just a public presentation of your narcissm, not more.

I kindly ask the editors of LWN to remove the parent comment. This is personal insult, and does not meet the standards of this publication.

I don't believe LWN's editorial staff are in the habit of doing that. Usual policy with flamewars, off-topic digressions and such - even when they pass into the realm of personal insult - seems to be for jcorbet to politely request that the parties to such things kindly take them elsewhere. I'm slightly startled that someone with a subscriber number a tenth of my own hasn't noticed this.

Removing comments

Removing comments is something we really try hard not to do; with maybe two exceptions over the entire lifetime of LWN, the only comments we have removed are outright spam.

That said, I do think that the conversation above has gone as far as it needs to.

For what it's worth, I've found value in your comments as well as the article. I've also been following Linux video editing since the Broadcast 2000 days and hadn't yet come across OpenShot.

You seem like you'd be in posession of a decent vantage point to write an article articulating some of your points about Linux and video. Not as a contrast to this article, just the angle you wanted to see in the first place.
