I appreciate that fact that Linux is a free operating system and a pretty good one at that.
However, when it comes to software. Linux users get stuck on the outside, looking in with no access to programs. Far to often.
I often wonder if it's truly worth the free ride.

That's true if you are talking 10 years ago :) who can imagine that one day google will run android using Linux?

I am sorry to say that your comment is 10 years old, when the last time you used Linux ubuntu for example? I assure you will be amazed :)

Besides, i believe it's trending thing when we say Linux or mac, you will be targeting specific people globally the way google did globally. And, since Linux became alreay popular, what makes mac different than linux then, you already support mac.

You support mac not because windows users agree on it, but because mac users demand it. I assure you that the Linux community world wide will thank you

I did some looking around, when it comes to video editing.

Adobe, Sony Vegas, and pretty much everyone else.Doesn't run on Linux. So I don't think I'm 10 years behind the times on my statement in that regards.

However, DaVinci Resolve  will run on Linux. They have a free version that's pretty much 100% full featured.It's got a learning curve.
This is a high powered editor.

There is indeed a lot of software these days for Linux. Debian based systems have access to the largest repository by far with very good, mostly free open-source software. I am very much a Linux enthusiast and have been using Debian since version 6. Today I use version 9 with KDE, which is a very mature operating system outclassing Mac and Windows in many ways.

However, the quality and software availability does not change the fact that Linux is first and foremost a free, open-source OS that does not fit in a commercial world driven by proprietary software. This is why Linux users still experience limitations and why it will not become a leading desktop operating system (I'm not talking about smartphones and servers here), unless Microsoft and Apple choose to go open-source too.

That said, it is obvious why software companies avoid Linux. The desktop user base is too small compared to Windows and Mac and traditional software development tools won't allow them to compile their products targeting Qt or GTK. So if you choose Linux as you OS, you rely for the most part on the open-source software community. They are doing a tremendous job writing advanced software mostly in their spare time.

Since we're talking about video editing software, a great example is Kdenlive https://kdenlive.org/. I heard a youtuber the other day claiming it is better than Sony Vegas. I'm not sure about this since I have never used it, but it may be worth a try.
