I use Cinelerra in Linux. It's actually pretty good, but there are some
really annoying things it does and doesn't do. Fortunately, I can just
go in and change them. Then I make a diff of it, and can mail that off
to the "real" developers.

I don't mind clunky and uncomfortable if I can fix it myself.
