I was excited to give this a try, but I can't seem to find links to the source, just Ubuntu links :(

 

Anyway, nice write up. I will look forward to more of your reviews.

According to the download page, the source is available as part of the build wizard link provided, but I haven't tried it so I don't know how that works. http://launchpad.net/openshot/build-wizard/create-a-build-wizard/+download/openshot_wizard_1.0.6.tar.gz

I did grab that, the README says its designed for Ubuntu. I may give it a go later but have a feeling it will use apt-get to grab its needed packages.
