Pitivi Aims To Bring Real Video Editing to Linux

"This is about trying to improve the video editing experience that we have in GNOME," explained Ramkrishna. "We don't have, under Linux, a very good experience with media, at all.

Video editing, even music — everything gets better by supporting this program."
