Maybe so, but the whole point of my guide is to demonstrate what can currently be achieved with FOSS tools. Although some find Cinelerra difficult to use (because they don't have a two monitor setup and/or don't want to learn how to use it normally) the system I've described is much more portable, free and scaleable than any Windows or Mac setup will ever be. xdtv, mencoder, mplayer and cinelerra really are about as powerful as anybody could want- its Linux DVD menu editors (menus=gimmickry imo) if thats what you really want that are really lagging behind apps on 'doze or osx. I couldn't care less so I'm happy with Linux video as it is but I can't wait to see how it will progress- expect it to pick up radidly now the PS3 has been released!
