About a year ago (around Nov 2009) openshot was very unstable, but in
the last ten months it has improved a lot stabilizing its UI and now it
is as stable as kdenlive. Both use the same library to do the video
manipulation (http://packages.debian.org/source/sid/mlt), so both have
the same power and almost the same features . It's a matter of the mlt
frontend you prefer: "a la kde" or "a la gnome".

Boths applications are as stable as the mlt framework is.

I don't use those apps, but the feedback of my teachers is that a year
ago they prefered kdenlive and now they prefer openshot. A year ago
openshot crashed often, and now it doesn't and has an easier interface
for them. So I'm happily sponsoring openshot in Debian.

I think both should be in kde edu, for this reason. Kde users will feel
more confortable with kdenlive while gnome users will feel the same with
Other options as cinelerra or blender are too much for usual educative
uses (excepting vocational teaching), and kino, pitivi or
openmovieeditor far from kdenlive and openshot power and easy of use.
