But I think us old dogs can still learn new tricks 9maybe slower and with a little pain, hehe). Since we are talking about "non-pro", I think most of these program should do ok, (Sony, Nero, Corel, Roxio, etc.). I think what's important are the features in these program...and do you need them. I have not compare PE8 (it's 10 now) and Sony in detail but there is one feature in PE I find very interesting.."motion bubble". Personally I have no use for it but I can see people with kids into sport could use that very nicely.

Yeah, compare the features; if you you like them..get it. Us old dogs can still learn new tricks!
