Just a thought...

Kino, Kdenlive, Ardourd2, Rosegarden, Hydrogen... are there really so bad?


I wasn't questioning whether you could do A/V editing on Linux. I don't have a lot of experience with the various software packages for that, so I can't really compare that experience on different platforms and software packages. I was just suggesting that anything that is really hardware intensive (like A/V editing, encoding, or moderately demanding video games) really DOES need to run locally on a workstation powerful enough to support that activity. Thin clients aren't really a good idea for a demanding application like that, hence my suggestion to have a small lab of real (quote-unquote) workstations but have them authenticate and get NFS /home from the same server as your thin clients.

I have saved document from DavidTrask and Matt Odquist on how to set this up for OS X workstations. I'm not sure if it's online anymore, so if you are interested I'd be happy to post it.
