You will be in luck, David.  Your new Mac hardware is Intel based, and
you ought to find success with the latest K12Linux.  At the very
least, you will find some enthusiastic debugging support until it gets

KDENLIVE , http://www.kdenlive.org/  is something you might want to
look at for movie editing.

Also, Open Movie Editor, http://www.openmovieeditor.org/

It's hard to do better than the Mac's movie editing offerings, but
these are both pretty and friendly applications.  I imagine that
others on this list have had success with something else.

Depending on what kind of sound editing you want to do, you will
probably find better applications that do more in the Fedora/K12Linux
project than you will with the Mac alone.  What kind of sound editing
do you want to perform?
