Consider getting a Mac if you can at all afford one. I tried to use several programs on Windows and on Linux, and easily crashed all of them. After I bought a Mac, the whole process became painless, and iMovie, which comes standard, works well. As far as distribution, most sites (You Tube,, etc) will accept whatever format you have and convert it.
