 It is pretty nice. I still need to pay for a copy. Supposedly Macromedia
intends to port Flash pretty soon though...

 Jahshaka's ok... it strikes me as incomplete. I don't really like the editor
in Kino. Kdenlive strikes me as an excellent solution {Tho' it's incomplete it
is coming along fairly quickly.}

 Both of which I use. {Tho' I don't have any real interest in 3d... I should
say "I use CinePaint... K3d has a home on my harddrive". I'll get to it 

 ...You rarely hear them discussed anywhere and they all strike me as selling
points for linux.
