I don't know what happened there… here's the correct sentence:
”I have seen, on some computers forums, people asking for video
editing tools, and when they find one that can do just about anything
a pro will ever want, they complain that it's not free…”
Maybe I changed the structure of the sentence and then forgot to
remove some words… Sorry for being confusing.
