Video editing has long been a thorn in the side of open source users.  There simply wasn't an easy to use video editor...until now!  Make no mistake, Linux and Open Source are HUGE in the film industry.  Many major motion pictures are created using Linux/Unix based video editing software.  Remember the fun animated film "Shrek"?  Anyway...until now there has not been a good entry level video editing program that could be used by beginners to create videos.  Enter....(drumroll please) OpenShot Video EditorOpenShot is a relatively new project, yet development is moving along at a good clip.  Check out some of the screencasts and videos below!  Give it a try!
