    What video editor are you using now?

    In one of your previous posts I believe you’ve mentioned having started into Linux using Ubuntu. What were the drivers to move from Ubuntu to whichever distro you’re using right now? BTW congratulations on your TWIL. I’m a big fan.

      Thank you very much! There were several things that drove me to switch to other distros. I was having a lot of issues with screencasting, and didn’t have time to try to fix them myself (sound would cut out, but you wouldn’t know it until after you had finished the video and waited for it to encode completely). Also, I was just curious to see what else was out there, and I’ve found quite a few distros that I really enjoy.

    • I notice he didn’t mention his current distro, probably because he doesn’t want to advocate for any distro and because he truly believes that there’s a distro out there for everyone. Great guy! :)

      • TWIL says:

        I have to admit, I have advocated for several distros in the past, but you’re absolutely right. I believe that there’s no distro that’s 100% perfect for everyone, so I like to live by the motto “to each his own”.
        Personally, I do use Arch Linux on my desktop and Fedora on my laptop, but that can change at a moment’s notice.

  3. Awesome! Especially Sabayon, looks tempting (while I’m an Ubuntu user) and the new AMD drivers! I bet AMD/ATI video cards will become ubiquitous on the average Linux desktop.

    I have a proposition: what do you think about using some of this music as a background to the TWiL news? –> http://www.emancipatormusic.com/

    I know it will mean more editing but I think it would really make the show feel like something. (not that it’s not a great show already, I love it and it’s my favourite.)

    • TWIL says:

      I normally do use background music in the news videos, but after a few comments, I decided to try leaving it out to see what people said. I prefer to have it there.

      The problem with background music is that a lot of it is copyright protected, so usually I use music from incompetech.com, and I’ve composed/performed a little piece I used in one video as well.

      To be honest, my long-term goal is to write and perform all of my own background music/sounds. :)
