I concur. The problem is that some distributions are rather picky when it comes to non-free Codecs.
For that reason there came to be openartist, artistx, sahabuntu, dyne::bolic, younameit..
FWIW I stay with debian plus debian-multimedia for the non-free stuff; works just the same if not better :)

I like OME a lot for smaller projects. The GUI is efficient and intuitive and it's got all features to make a nice movie. Currently the only issue with it is the lack of export-format-presets.
For more elaborate projects there's cinelerra (until lumiera is born) and Blender which offers a 2D video-timeline as well.
And of course there are quite a few alternatives: pitivi, kino, kdenlive,.. A while ago I started http://linuxfilm.org/start (hosting provided by linuxaudio.org!) - an index of video-apps for GNU/Linux. It's currently being merged into and migrated to http://openvideoalliance.org/wiki/
Non-Linear Video Editors (NLE) on GNU/Linux still leave a lot to be desired. However it's not unheard of to make award winning films for renowned film-festivals on that platform.
