Good point. I'd never tried running Cinelerra on anything that slow,  
but given what it can do what you say makes sense.

The OP was asking about editors for either Ubuntu or WinXP, in spite  
of the subject line, and my only point was that there are a lot of  
free choices for the former. Google for "Linux Video Editor" and you  
will get a lot of hits.

As far as XP, in addition to what's been mentioned here already, most  
of the offerings from Sonic or Nero etc. have some rudimentary  
editing capability, but all are commercial. Guess I just figure most  
folks here would prefer Open Source solutions if possible.
