Despite the problems I have had with Linux, XP is far from great. I have spent the day working with different movie makers. Windows Movie Maker which stops working on large files, ULEAD Video Studio 10, clunky but it works, and Adobe Premier Elements 3.0, this freezes on large files too.
So right now I can not get anything to work to make a PC movie…. Maybe it's time to purchase an iMac.
