Have to agree with Andrew Post 2, . pretty crap and constantly froze computer.
Tools very complicated and fiddly.
Maybe for expert it might be ok but for normal users with average editing knowledge forget it

In order to install this crap, you HAVE to be registered, without it it won't run. And the registration e-mail takes forever to arrive.

I installed LightWorks 11.5.1 in Linux Mint 16 x64. It runs great and is a very feature rich NLE. Using the free version, you can only export to YouTube ready 720p h.264/aac mp4. Very good editor overall for free and works great in Linux....
