The lack of a decent movie editor on Linux is one of the reasons I keep an XP dual boot.
OpenShot has potential. It has a nice simple look to it, but there's a couple little things that I don't like about it like you can't drap photo the your preferred length, I don't like their cut tool, and no auto drag clip alignment as MovieMaker has.
Linux has about a dozen video editors, but they all kind of suck, which is a shame. I think half of the Linux video makers should merge with the other half to produce better video editors to catch up with Win and Mac since we are in the "youtube age."

If one of the commercially supported distros were to pile some resources into it, then that would be great - but the rewards aren't likely to be worthwhile. The amount of potential Linux users who really want a good Video Editor isn't really a huge subset of the total out there.
