Unfortunately you are correct, it's a Mac-only app at this time. Just  
thought I'd tell you what I'm using and point out that the underlying  
programs have the ability to make the transition. Theoretically you  
could use PearPC to run it, but I don't advise that :-)

Avidemux2 is probably your best bet if you need a Linux GUI, but it  
would be a multi-step process.
