I'm trying to get hubby to use the linux lite laptop, but he doesn't seem very keen. He takes lots of mountain bike/motorcycling videos but finds it difficult to edit them in win10, especially now that windows movie maker has gone. I downloaded shotcut for him, but he doesn't like the program.
Is there a linux equivalent of the old movie maker? Or something easy to use? I really want him to start using linux. I suggested he download some photos because it has a nice simple photo manager (that doesn't use face recognition like win10), but no, can't get him to use it.
*sigh*

Here's a list from last year that should give you a decent overview of what's available for Linux. Check the descriptions and the Pros and Cons.

You could just keep hubby happy with an old computer running Windows Movie Maker. But I would keep that computer off of the home network and internet. ;)

I have a 21 yr old acer lappy [batter knackerd] after mint 13 I could not [and still cant get] any linux ro run properly, so I put XP back on it and loaded all my old windows games, for granddaughter to play on when she comes over... as they say waste not want not and as there is no on board wi-fi no worries

Why not try to edit them with online programs? They're pretty simple to use. They're usually very basic and light, and they don't have any complicated settings. If you're interested, you can look here. Also, if he prefers Windows over Linux, don't force him to use it. When you've been using one operating system for a long time, you might not like another. My wife is trying to convince me to purchase an iPhone rather than a Samsung phone, but I refuse because I prefer Samsung. So, he is understandable, haha.
