I use Linux for audio creation and video editing. Its professional tools are great - best in the industry.
However, I have yet to find anything that allows the simple creation of a consumer readable DVD. Presently after I have created the master files I send it out to a contractor who puts the DVD format "wrapper" around it and stamps out the DVDs.
This is really not a problem for the media creation professionals as our workstations, be they Linux, BSD, or Mac's, can import and export a wide variety of file formats. It is a pain, however, to create a one-off that one can give to ones friends with just at consumer DVD player.
