VideoLinux is a Linux distribution designed specifically for heavy video work. If you’re big into video but aren’t big into the pricetag that accompanies a lot of professional video editing and encoding suites, VideoLinux might be just what you’re looking for. If you just want to try it out without making the commitment of a full install, try the Live CD first.
I’m always excited by powerful new open source releases. And as I’ve been dealing a lot with video editing lately, this one caught my interest. I’d love to hear if any educators try it out.
