Best Video-Editing Software for Windows XP?

My wife is engaged in editing some audio/video files. She's pretty well versed in the GIMP
for photo-editing and has been very frustrated using Windows MovieMaker thus far.
Here's how she describes what she's trying to do: "
I want software that will allow me to edit video from various sources, make slide shows and edit audio for podcasts. I'd like it to be easy to use, contain tools to make credits and captions, and give my work a professional feel. It also needs to produce a product that is compatible with upload requirements on you tube etc.
" By 'sources' she means DVD VOB files, MOV files, AVI, etc. No HD support is required at this point.
Is there some open source analog to GIMP for video editing? And what are comparable commercial packages? I see that Pinnacle Studio 11 is popular; we wouldn't want to pay more than say $200 (so Adobe Premiere is out of the question). There's also Ulead
. Here's a list of the top-sellers on Amazon
...I would appreciate recommendations from anyone familiar with multiple packages.
Last resort is to buy a Mac and use iMovie;).
