Oh, that's how ignorant I am, LOL - didn't realize GIMP worked on Linux. GIMP is what I use on both PC and Mac because I'm just editing photos to put on websites and GIMP is more than adequate. So that problem's solved.
As for video editing... I hear ya, dstiles. My videos are pretty simple too, so I've just used the Windows Live Movie Maker and iMovie that come with the other two operating systems. Recent version of iMovie are compromising quality for upload speeds, and there doesn't seem to be any way to compensate for it. I'll have to look into what's available on Linux - I really just need something that renders good quality video from good quality footage, since I'm not trying to make a blockbuster movie or anything.
Thanks for this thread, everyone! I have been wondering about Linux for years, but was intimidated by the possibility of a steep learning curve. I'm getting more and more tempted.
