I added a new item to my list today, a movie creation tool. My son likes to grab photos, videos from our camera, and various sound files and compile them into his own home movies. He enjoyed using Windows Movie Maker for this. A cursory search in the Linux universe didn’t turn up anything. I fully assume this is out there, I just need to spend a little more time on it.To be fair to Linux… Vista comes with Movie Maker. But I cannot run it on my laptop because the video card is too old. Now how about that! No backwards compat mode, no mode to say “we will turn off the advanced features”. Just a simple no, you upgraded to Vista and now you lose a feature you had in XP. I’m sure if I asked there would be all sorts of reasons for this decision and reasonable people would agree with any of those reasons. But at the end of the day (i.e shipping the product) the fact remains that people lose a feature they not only paid for but paid for twice!
