Feeling abandoned by Adobe? Check out the video editing suites for penguins

When it comes to video editing, Windows and Mac rule the screen. Professional apps by the likes of Adobe, Avid and Apple only run in the Win/Mac world and Apple even throws in a pretty sophisticated video editor (iMovie) for free.

No matter how much you love Linux and open source software, you’re never going to get Adobe Premiere or Avid running on a Linux box. If it makes you feel better, most of the massive render farms at studios like Pixar run exclusively on Linux. No? Me either.
