And one other goodie;


Buy once, use twice - unlock the MainActor v5 Linux and Windows version with the same serial number

What upsets me is that you have to have different versions for each flavour of Linux and they don't have one for Fedora/Red Hat. Also, you have to upgrade the app when you upgrade Linux (or vice versa).

Because they optimise for Suse, I obtained a Suse demo a coupla weeks ago, but it's impossible to load an external app to it, because it uses a DVD as the boot drive. I've heard that the MC offering is the best one for Linux, but it is DV only, as I understand it. It will encode to MPEG but there is no authoring.

I'd like to try it though, when I have time (rare commodity, these days :( )
