Alternative OS to use for video editing

  1. After upgrading my computer, I had enough spare parts to make a second computer. It has:

    Athlon XP 1800+
    768 Mb RAM
    Pinnacle Video Capture Card
    GeForce 4 MX 64Mb Graphics Card

    I want to use it soley for video editing so I can free up my new computer (some of the renders take 8 - 10 hours). Always wanting to try something new, I was wondering what version of Linux (free or commercial) or any other alternative OS would be best for video editing. I'm all ears if you have any suggestions for video editing software to run on Linux (or other OS). Thanks! :grinthumb

    I have heard positive reactions to Kino under Linux.
    Don't know anything about it, though.
