I wonder if Magix would consider a Linux version of Movie Studio.
I've spoken to one of the plugin manufacturers and they are open to the possibility if any of the NLEs they bundle with want to go that direction.
A number of YouTube videos have shown bench-marking tests of the same NLEs running natively on Windows & Linux and found significant render time improvements by using Linux rather than windows.
Given that Linux and windows are growing closer (Linux developer environment in Windows), and Microsoft getting onto one of the Linux boards, this looks to be the way to go for development. The fact that Linux OS is also free, would allow for more people to make the swap over much more smooth.
I am extremely pleased with my windows copy of Movie Studio Suite 14 (under a 'Windows 7' VM) on linux (although the plugins don't work correctly), but would gladly pay an upgrade fee or outright new license for the v17 suite running natively on Linux.
