Ubuntu as main OS for video editing?

Hi guys, what do you think about Ubuntu as main video editing OS? I know that Mac and Win are most commonly used in real world, but is here anybody who is editing on Linux? In past this wasn't good idea, because of availability of pro editing software, but today we have Davinci Resolve on linux, Fusion.. I never worked with Lightworks, but it looks also pretty good.. But what could replace protools/audition and photoshop? Gimp is I think more focused on web design and it' missing some advanced features included in photoshop... or? I don't know, I'm not a pro in Gimp.

You answered your own question. If Mac and Win are the two main OS in the world, who are you going to turn to for support when the application has an issue? What do perceive as the primary advantage?

Yes, i tried it two weeks ago. But it goes with several bugs and crashes. Not good for real work. :)

I like editing on Linux with Kdenlive.
