For video editing, Final Cut Pro in OSX  is just overwhelmingly
superior to anything else out there.

I love Linux, it is what I use every day, but when it comes to proper
video editing, Linux is not there yet ( I have edited several short
films in the last few months, I can't imagine I would have managed to
do the same with Linux unfortunately).

I have not tried the cheaper version (Final Cut Pro Express) but if it
works as well as its big brother for the basic features, it should be
more than enough for anybody.

So in synthesis, I don't know what your friends using OSX are smoking :-)
