> What you're missing is that the people just now trying Linux are

I'm struggling with this myself at the moment. I'm a Linux user and have
been for 5 years, and recently decided I want to make some videos. I am
delving into Linux audio and video and finding lots of great work and
interesting projects, but ... I just want to make videos, not spend a good
deal of my time fiddling with Linux AS WELL AS making videos.

So I'm considering MacOS X just to get the work done, hopefully I can
focus primarily on the product I want to create and not the tools I use to
create it. Whatever happens, I'll also continue to use Linux where I can
and encourage others to do so wherever appropriate, and to learn as much
as I can about audio/video on Linux.

Somebody today told me about a perspective on Linux that supposedly
originated with Mark Shuttleworth:

There are 3 levels of Linux use -
(1) basic web, email, word processing etc
(2) professional activities requiring use of more specialised software and
hardware
(3) high-end scientific/engineering stuff

In his opinion, Linux is great for levels 1 and 3, it is in level 2 that a
lot of frustration is found. I think audio/video is a level 2 activity.

Anyway,

Mick
