    Because this is an extremely generic use case. When editing video, most often users need to cut at a specific frame not neccesarily time. Unless the user knows that frame 4923 is the one they want before hand somehow, they need to see and playback the video. Now can it be done using a command line and a separate window? Yes. Is that more cumbersome than a graphical UI? Yes.

    It's pretty much the best open source video editor out there. It has the right mix of ease of use and functionality - they just need to work on the flakiness. Every now and then when I have need to do video editing, I've looked at the alternatives, and Kdenlive - crashes and all - is the only thing that ever actually does the job.

    The commercial Windows based editors may well work a lot better, but I'll never know, because I'll never use any of them.

    Yes, but does it actually WORK? The previous versions I have used were all steaming piles of dung. Is this a new, better-functioning release, or is this just another "Hey, look at us linux folk, we can do what the rest of you can, too"?

    That is what these usually turn out to be, and it's annoying to download/test a new release to realize it's the same shitty package with a new number tacked on.

If it's not in the computer, it doesn't exist.
