The interface certainly looks nice.

Quite a difference from, say, Cinellera

Granted, image isn't everything. But if the only polished the GUI after the system was already significantly capable (like they should), then this could definitely be a good editor.

I'm confused. Is an industry-standard editing suite actually being made available for free? What's the rationale behind this? Driving Premiere, Vegas, Womble, Final Cut Express and all midrange software out of business? Or do they just want people to switch so people will want to buy their storage solutions?

This is potentially a big thing. But I have a hard time cutting through the thick fog of self-hype in the press release.

Just now I heard the news that this software is set to be released for Linux until late 2011!

That much time to wait is such a let down for me, I would really like to have this kind of tool available on my preferred OS... oh well.

Same thing for Mac. But for those of you who use Windows, looks like November 29th is your lucky day.
Criticism is good. Suggestions are better.

Indeed heb, perhaps the best hope for us *nix based OS users is Lumiera though it's still quite early in its development, so for now no choice but to wait or make do with the constantly improving Kdenlive...

But then again I guess all you Mac dudes are happy with what Steve's evil minions release :p

Anyone know how many audio tracks you can have in this program?

This is really amazing. Very curious to see how good this program is. Could really open up editing to the average Joe.

I would have to assume that it would have enough.

Just so i know, and sorry in advance for this perhaps rediculous question, but does open source mean free?
