each to his own....
give a car to some and it crashes or doesn't work ... give the same car to
others and it runs fine.
I teach Movie Maker at my local library. Just before each class they set up
the room with a dozen Sony Vaio laptops.... never used for Movie Maker until
my classes.... and the users are new to the software. The funny thing is
that in the classes we capture video from my camcorder, make movies, publish
them, etc. No matter which of the randomly selected computers we use for the
class, the movie-making works fine.
There are lots of other video editing software packages to use... I
encourage users to get them for the added features. Movie Maker is
entry-level starter software.
My libary classes use XP, not Vista... but Movie Maker in Vista is about the
same as XP.
