I and many others have been successfully using it for many years. Yes, there
are issues that sometimes have to be dealt with, and they can be.
I teach Movie Maker at my local library and go into the classroom each month
faced with a randomly selected batch of desktop computers....
interestinglly, in the hands of newbies, the newer computers tend to work
fine.... from capturing video from a comcorder to rendering a movie.
My website has my collected experiences and comments.
